Rabbi Kaduri Revealed the Name of the Messiah
When a Rabbi of the stature of Kaduri transmits this information to his people - not only it should be amply circulated in the Jewish circles but also in the Christian circles - thus our publication of it.
Yitzchak Kaduri, who died January 28, 2006, was a renowned Mizrahi Haredi rabbi (2) and kabbalist (mystic) who devoted his life to Torah (the first five books of the Old Testament) study and prayer on behalf of the Jewish people. He taught and practiced the kavanot of the Rashash (a variety of mystical prayers). 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. At the time of his death, estimates of his age ranged from 110 to 118, and his birth year is still disputed..

Rabbi Reveals Name of the Messiah
Shortly before he died, one of Israel's most prominent rabbis wrote the name of the Messiah on a
small note which he requested would remain sealed until his death. When the note was opened, it
revealed what many have known for centuries: Yehoshua, or Yeshua (Jesus), is the Messiah.
With the biblical name of Jesus, the Rabbi and kabbalist described the Messiah using six words and hinting that the initial letters form the name of the Messiah. The secret note said:
Concerning the letter abbreviation of the Messiah's name, He will lift the people and prove that his word and law are valid.
The Hebrew sentence (translated above in bold) with the hidden name of the Messiah reads: Yarim Ha'Am Veyokhiakh Shedvaro Vetorato Omdim
The initials spell the Hebrew name of Jesus, Yehoshua. Yehoshua and Yeshua are effectively the
same name, derived from the same Hebrew root of the word "salvation" as documented in Zechariah
6:11 and Ezra 3:2.
With one of Israel's most prominent rabbis indicating that the name of the Messiah is Yeshua, it is understandable why his last wish was to wait one year after his death before revealing what he wrote.
When the name of Yehoshua appeared in Kaduri's message, ultra-Orthodox Jews from his Nahalat Yitzhak Yeshiva (seminary) in Jerusalem argued that their master did not leave the exact solution for decoding the Messiah's name.
The revelation received scant coverage in the Israeli media. Only the Hebrew websites News First Class (Nfc) and Kaduri.net mentioned the Messiah note, insisting it was authentic. The Hebrew daily Ma'ariv ran a story on the note but described it as a forgery.
Yet others completely denied any possibility that the note is authentic.
Kaduri's son, Rabbi David Kaduri, said that at the time the note was written (September 2005), his father's physical condition made it impossible for him to write.
KADURI'S PORTRAYAL OF THE MESSIAH
A few months before Kaduri died at the age of 108, he surprised his
followers when he told them that he met the Messiah. Kaduri gave a message in his synagogue on Yom
Kippur, the Day of Atonement, teaching how to recognize the Messiah.
He also mentioned that the Messiah would appear to
Israel after Ariel Sharon's death (which occurred on January 11, 2014).
Other rabbis have predicted the same, including Rabbi Haim Cohen, kabbalist Nir Ben Artzi and the wife of Rabbi Haim Kneiveskzy.
Kaduri's grandson, Rabbi Yosef Kaduri, said his grandfather spoke many times during his last days about the coming of the Messiah and redemption through the Messiah.
His spiritual portrayals of the Messiah - reminiscent of New Testament accounts - were published on the websites Kaduri.net and Nfc:
"It is hard for many good people in society to understand the person of the Messiah. The leadership and order of a Messiah of flesh and blood is hard to accept for many in the nation. As leader, the Messiah will not hold any office, but will be among the people and use the media to communicate. His reign will be pure and without personal or political desire. During his dominion, only righteousness and truth will reign.
"Will all believe in the Messiah right away? No, in the beginning some of us will believe in him and some not. It will be easier for non religious people to follow the Messiah than for Orthodox people.
"The revelation of the Messiah will be fulfilled in two stages: First, he will actively confirm his position as Messiah without knowing himself that he is the Messiah. Then he will reveal himself to some Jews, not necessarily to wise Torah scholars. It can be even simple people. Only then he will reveal himself to the whole nation. The people will wonder and say: ‘What, that's the Messiah?' Many have known his name but have not believed that he is the Messiah."
FAREWELL TO A 'TSADIK'
Kaduri was not only highly esteemed because of his age of 108. He was charismatic and wise, and chief rabbis looked up to him as a Tsadik, a righteous man or saint. He would give advice and blessings to everyone who asked. Thousands visited him to ask for counsel or healing. His followers speak of many miracles and his students say that he predicted many disasters.
When he died, more than 200,000 people joined the funeral procession on the streets of Jerusalem to pay their respects as he was taken to his final resting place.
"When he comes, the Messiah will rescue Jerusalem from foreign religions that want to rule the city," Kaduri once said. "They will not succeed for they will fight against one another."
THE RABBI'S FOLLOWERS REACT
In an interview with Israel Today, Rabbi David Kaduri, the 80-year-old son of the late Rabbi Yitzhak Kaduri, denied that his father left a note with the name Yeshua just before he died.
"It's not his writing," he said when we showed him a copy of the note.
During a nighttime meeting in the Nahalat Yitzhak Yeshiva in Jerusalem, books with the elder Kaduri's handwriting from 80 years ago were presented to us in an attempt to prove that the Messiah note was not authentic.
When we told Rabbi Kaduri that his father's official website (www.kaduri.net) had mentioned the Messiah note, he was shocked. "Oh no! That's blasphemy. The people could understand that my father pointed to him [the Messiah of the Christians]."
David Kaduri confirmed, however, that in his last year, his father had talked and dreamed almost exclusively about the Messiah and his coming. "My father has met the Messiah in a vision," he said, "and told us that he would come soon."
Israel Today was given access to many of the rabbi's manuscripts, written in his own hand for the exclusive use of his students. Most striking were the cross-like symbols painted by Kaduri all over the pages. In the Jewish tradition, one does not use crosses. In fact, even the use of a plus sign is discouraged because it might be mistaken for a cross.
But there they were, scribbled in the rabbi's own hand. When we asked what those symbols meant, Rabbi David Kaduri said they were "signs of the angel." Pressed further about the meaning of the "signs of the angel," he said he had no idea. Rabbi David Kaduri went on to explain that only his father had had a spiritual relationship with God and had met the Messiah in his dreams.
Orthodox Jews around the Nahalat Yitzhak Yeshiva told
Israel Today a few weeks later
that the story about the secret note of Rabbi Kaduri
should never have come out, and that it had damaged the name the revered old sage.
There are some very interesting items in this story which we would like to highlight now.
1. The denials: Are childish and immature at best. While Kaduri's son admits that: "My father has met the Messiah in a vision, and told us that he would come soon." and that the cross like symbols painted by Kaduri all over the pages were "signs of the angel.", even when the "+" sign is not even used as a "plus" sign in those circles since it symbolizes Christianity, he flatly denies an undeniable reality.
The "Temple Masters" continue to live on today as they did 2000 years ago. The only difference is that this time, they have a Vatican Branch....
2. Kaduri's description of the coming Messiah....
(b) "The revelation of the Messiah will be fulfilled in two stages: First, he will actively confirm his position as Messiah without knowing himself that he is the Messiah. Then he will reveal himself to some Jews, not necessarily to wise Torah scholars. It can be even simple people. Only then he will reveal himself to the whole nation. The people will wonder and say: ‘What, that's the Messiah?' Many have known his name but have not believed that he is the Messiah."
.... is as if Kaduri were describing exactly as it happened 2,000 years ago and not the way it will happen now. The only difference may appear to be the statement "and use the media to communicate", yet, Jesus did indeed use the media of His time - word of mouth - to communicate.
Mystically speaking, we have here a high ranking Jewish religious leader who is accepting Jesus as the Messiah in retrospect although the vision that he has is thought to be, by him and his followers, of a time in the future.
Once again, mystically speaking, when the Second Coming takes place and Jesus appears in all His Glory, quite different from the format Kaduri and his followers were expecting, they will be before the eyes of God just as any Christian of faith witnessing the manifestation of His Savior. After all, Jesus Himself said:
The only problem that we see at this point is that the promoters of Maitreya (and other versions of the messiah), have already latched on to Kaduri's revelation to pass the False Christ as the real Christ (3).
Could this also be the reason for the great interest of the Vatican has shown to secure "a seat" in the Upper Room above King David's tomb (4)?
For those of weak faith, the recognition key continues to be what we learned in the Acts of the Apostles:
Let us pray that all Jews who are among the Elect, thus need to hear about Rabbi Kaduri's statements, do so. That is our responsibility!

(2) Sephardic Haredim are Jews of Sephardic and Mizrahi descent who are adherents of Haredi Judaism. Sephardic Haredim today constitute a significant stream of Haredi Judaism, alongside the Hassidim and Lita'im. An overwhelming majority of Sephardic Haredim reside in Israel, where Sephardic Haredi Judaism emerged and developed. Although there is a lack of consistency in many of the statistics regarding Haredim in Israel, it is thought that some 20% of Israel's Haredi population are Sephardic Haredim. This figure is disputed by Shas, which claims that the number is "much higher than 20%" and cites voting patterns in Haredi cities to support its position.
