Rav Yaakov Abuchatzeira
Rav Yaakov Abuchatzeira — the “Abir Yaakov” — was the scion of one of the most illustrious Torah families of Morocco. Baba Sali zt’l was one of his grandsons, and Rav David Abuchatzeira shlit”a, the renowned Kabbalist of Nahariya, is a great-great-grandson.
The Abir Yaakov authored over a dozen works of Jewish thought, kabbalah and halachah. In order to make his works accessible to the general public, a team of talmidei chachamim arranged the Abir Yaakov’s writings by topic, and included introductions, background information, and elucidations. The Hebrew-language work is now available in a flowing and readable English translation.
