Harav Yitzchak Kaduri ,  died January 28, 2006), was a renowned Mizrahi Haredi rabbi and kabbalist
who devoted his life to Torah study and prayer on behalf of the Jewish people. 
 
 He taught and practiced the kavanot of the Rashash. 
 His blessings and amulets were also widely sought to cure people of illnesses and infertility. 
 In his life, he published no religious articles or books.[2] 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.

He went to study at the Shoshanim LeDavid Yeshiva for kabbalists from Iraq. 
There he learned from the leading kabbalists of the time, including Rabbi Yehuda Ftaya, 
author of Beit Lechem Yehudah, and Rabbi Yaakov Chaim Sofer, author of Kaf Hachaim. 
He later immersed himself in regular Talmudic study and rabbinical law in the Porat Yosef Yeshiva in 
Jerusalem's Old City, where he also studied Kabbalah with the Rosh Yeshivah, Rabbi Ezra Attiya, Rabbi Saliman Eliyahu father of Sephardic Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu), and other learned rabbis.

In 1934, Rabbi Kaduri and his family moved to the Old City, where the Porat Yosef Yeshivah gave him an apartment nearby with a job of binding the yeshivah's books and copying over rare manuscripts in the yeshivah's library. The books remained in the yeshivah's library, while the copies of manuscripts were stored in Rabbi Kaduri's personal library. Before binding each book, he would study it intently, committing it to memory. He was reputed to have photographic memory and also mastered the Talmud by heart, 
including the adjoining Rashi and Tosafot commentaries.
