Rabbi Kaduri states that he met the Messiah, who will come shortly after the death of Ariel Sharon - Comments? Rabbi Kaduri died in February/Tevet of 2006/5766. About five months before his death, the rabbi wrote something on a note and ordered that the envelope remain sealed until a year after his death. Everyone wondered about this, but his wishes were honored. When the note was finally read, it took the readers (all kabbalists) about 20 seconds to figure it out and go nuts. Here is what the note said, originally in Hebrew, of course. "He will lift the people and prove that his word and law are valid. This I have signed in the month of mercy, Yitzhak Kaduri" "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.
