Rabbi Kaduri Taken To Hospital -UOJ Predicts He'll Be Dead Soon, And There Will Be No Moshiach Revelation

Leading Kabbalist, over 100 years-old, said to be suffering from severe flu
Meital Yasur Beit-Or

Earlier, Rabbi Kaduri was taken to the Bikur Holim hospital in Jerusalem after suffering from weakness. He underwent a series of medical tests, before receiving treatment.

Friends of the rabbi say he has been suffering from severe flu. "We and his family are praying for his welfare," said a friend. Rabbi Kaduri is over 100 years-old.

Kaduri started out as a modest bookbinder, and has become one of the best known Kabbalists in the country.

He was born in Iraq, and immigrated to Israel at the age of 17. He studied in a Jerusalem Yeshiva, and was a student of Jerusalem Kabbalists who worked in the capital at the start of the previous century, including Rabbi Eliyahu, father of Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu.

Kaduri is considered a world Kabbalah expert.

Many members of the public possess a gold or silver mascot made for them by Kaduri. He has publicly backed the Shas party, and the humble Rabbi was introduced to the party by Aryeh Deri.

In recent months, Kaduri offered a blessing to opponents of the disengagement from Gaza, but surprised many followers when he offered his support for Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's Gaza pullout in April.

"If we give them a small thing and there will peace with them, we can leave Gush Katif. We can trust Sharon, he is okay. It is allowed to give up on territories in Gaza," the Rabbi told an ultra-Orthodox newspaper.

He added: "I have no faith in the Arabs but we must have a little quiet. Sharon's government isn't so bad.

Recently, rumors have circulated in the ultra-Orthodox world that that the messiah has revealed himself to Rabbi Kaduri in dreams.

UOJ Comments

I'm sorry, but in my humble opinion, these guys are frauds.He will be dead soon, and Moshiach will be nowhere to be found.
The damage these guys do to a public starving for some hope for something better than what exists, is mind shattering.
How can any sane person believe in this hocus-pocus? How many times are we going to be duped into believing something that was created by charlatans and dreamers?

The entire Kabbalist movement as we know it is one big fraud.
Every single one of them.

Before condemning anyone as a fraud, you should know that Rav Kaduri does not make any of the messianic predictions that are attributed to him. In fact, he gave a direct interview to Mishpacha magazine several months ago where he made it explicitly clear that those who make claims in his name have no legitimacy, and that he does not have any special "powers".

Un-Orthodox Jew:

You are creating a Chilul Hashem.

You say the Kabbalistic Movement is a fraud...do you know anything about Kabbalah?

Trust me, you will regret posting these comments on the web. You think G-d appreciates your 'honest' look at Orthodox Judaism?? Do you think you're doing good by posting slanderous comments about His people?

If Orthodoxy or Judaism is not the truth, than what is? Christianity? Islam? Atheism? There are much more dispicable things you can say about those 'truths' than you can about Judaism, Kabbalah and Kabbalistic Rabbis!

I truly hope you think about what you say. You will be held accountable in the end. As a Jew with Semicha, you should know this.
