Rabbi Kaduri's Most Recent Words
17:18 Jan 24, '06 / 24 Tevet 5766
(IsraelNN.com) Famed Kabbalist Rabbi Kaduri, who has been in serious to very condition in the hospital for 1.5 weeks, revived and spoke with those close to him for about an hour and forty minutes after the end of Shabbat, this past Saturday night. One of those people, Yehoshua Meiri, related to Arutz-7 the rabbi’s words. The rabbi spoke in Hebrew; what follows is an approximate translation:
“The Kabbalists will investigate my words [presumably esoteric material] over the last months, about Geulah [Redemption] and Moshiach [The Annointed Leader of the Jews during that period] and will reveal the secret name of Moshiach which was revealed to me on [the Hebrew calendar date] 9 Cheshvan, 5764 (November 11, 2003).” The rabbi said he actually met the person who will be Moshiach, on that date.
The rabbi said of the Moshiach, “He won’t come and say ‘I am the Moshiach. Give over the rule to me.’ Rather the Kabbalists would discover the secret name [of Moshiach] among my ‘hidden’[Kabbalistic] words and the nation will push him to lead it.”
Yehoshua also described a “ceremony” that took place during that period of the rabbi being awake. With only four people in the room, the rabbi “whispered Tzofanim Kabbalisti’im -- Kabalistic esoteric codes, to one person, whose name they are not saying.”
