Rav Yitzhak Khadouri was born at the end of the 19th century in Baghdad (Iraq), in his youth he knew the Ben Ish Hai, he studied Torah and Kabbalah from Babylonian and Jerusalem sages, and he moved to Israel in 1922. In his first years in Jerusalem he made a living binding books and studied at the Beit El and Porat Yosef yeshivot in the Old City. Over the years, his wisdom became famous, his knowledge of mysticism—many went to his home to receive blessings and advice from him, and to receive amulets for their welfare. Died in 2006 after living more than 100 years, and thousands of Jews from all walks of life participated in his funeral.
