Rabbi Kaduri

In 2006 a very aged and beloved Rabbi by the name of Yitzhak Kaduri died at the age of 108 in Israel.

Towards the end of his life, Rabbi Kaduri spoke very often of the Messiah, and said that the Messiah had come to him. Before he died the Rabbi left behind a note which he asked not be opened or read until a year after his death. In 2007 when the note was opened, shock came to his yeshiva students and the word was spread all across Israel that Kaduri left an acrostic, which is a word spelled out by the first letters in a sequence of words. The word it spelled out was, according to the Rabbi, the name of the Messiah. The name of the Messiah, the note said, is YESHUA - the Hebrew name for Jesus.

The Rabbi said another thing too. He said that the Messiah will come -- after the death of Ariel Sharon.

Ariel Sharon died today.
