Baba Sali was known Kabbalist that lived in Israel.
The open miracles that he performed on daily basis can fill many volumes. Finally there is book in English that depicts the life of this great man.
Baba Sali is grand-son of Rabbi Abuchatzera – disciple of ARI. Ever heard of Aladdin when you were a kid? Well the idea of Aladdin wasn’t really an invention.
Once Rabbi Abuchatzea was sent by ARIZAL to collect funds for yeshiva. He came to the Yaffo port to look for a ship that would take him on his trip. There was one problem – the boat that was ready to leave didn’t want to accept him on board.
Seeing that the ship departs, Rabbi Abuchatzera took the small carpet that was with him and laid it on the ground. As the boat left the port, the carpet flew him above the sea just behind the ship. Thus came his name Abuchatzera – which means the owner of the carpet.
While in our generation these stories are hard to imagine the book documents many miracles that were performed by his grandson – Baba Sali that were witnessed by many non-religious people and acknowledged by doctors and scientists as open miracles that go against laws of nature. The book also gives a glimpse at the daily life of this holy man
