The eldest kabbalist Rabbi Yitzchak Kaduri was a renowned rabbi, kabbalist and who devoted his life to Torah study and prayer on behalf of the Jewish people. Rabbi Yitzchak Kaduri was born at the end of the 19th Century in Iraq, studied Torah and Kabbalah from Babylonian (Iraq) and Jerusalem sages. He immigrated to Jerusalem in 1922 and initially made a living by binding books and manuscripts, while studying in the Beit El and Porat Yosef Yeshivot. Eventually, the word of his Kabbalistic wisdom spread and many sought his counsel, blessings and amulets [he was one of the few who still knew the wisdom of Kabbalistic amulets]. At the time of his death, estimates of his age ranged from 103 to 118, and his birth year is still disputed. His funeral which was held in Jerusalem drew over half a million followers in what was described as the largest funeral in Israel's history.
