Rabbi Shabtai Teicher’s funeral tonight

We note with sadness the passing of Rabbi Shabtai Teicher, a”h, who left this world within the past hour (the leviya will be at 10:30 PM this evening, Jerusalem time, from Shamgar) at the age of 63.

Rabbi Teicher came from the 60’s hippie movement to Jerusalem, entering the Diaspora Yeshiva. There he learned, became a rav, became a student of kabbalah and later a teacher of some of the most esoteric secrets of kabbalah. To those students fortunate enough to find their way to him, he opened the secrets of Eitz Chaim, Zohar, Leshem, among others.

Rabbi Teicher was a descendant of the 4th Rebbe of Chabad, Rebbe Shalom Dovber.

To this world he leaves his wife, 9 children, 10+ grandchildren, many students and unpublished manuscripts on the depths of the Zohar.

Rabbi Shabtai writes about himself: I was born in Brooklyn in the first wave of baby boomers. I graduated Hunter College CUNY after an unscheduled stop in Haight-Ashberry in the sixties. I departed from the U.S. in 1970 for the Promised Land. Still searching.

I attended first Ba’al Teshuvah Yeshivah in Jerusalem. I taught for many years and directed the ba’al teshuvah program in Mt. Zion Yeshivah. I learned kabbalah from one of the great masters in Jerusalem, and also learned jewish philosophy from one of the great masters in Jerusalem as well.

Rabbi Shabtai is the author of articles and books, the latest soon to be published — G-d willing — The Old Man in the Sea, a translation and commentary to Sabba De’Mishpatim from the Holy Zohar. He lives, teaches Torah and writes in Jerusalem, Israel.

Baruch Dayan Haemes, oy,alas! Such a good guy– he’s one of the signers of my Ketuba. If you had the right question to ask him, he would illuminate effortlessly and eloquently the whole mystery– gonna miss him.
