Songs and Piyutim in honor of Tsaddik Sidna Baba Salé

Box containing 8 audio cassettes, digitilized in mp3

The best Jewish singers from Morrocco, among them Samy Elmaghribi, Cheikh Mouizo or Maxime Michali, sing in honor of Rabbi Israel Abuhatzeira, aka Baba Salé...

Rabbi Israel Abuhatzeirais born on Rosh Hashana 5650 (September 26th 1889). His father was the Tsaddik Rabbi Massud, rabbi of a village named Rissani, in the region of Tefilalet. Since his childhood, Rabbi Israel woke up at dawn, went to bathe in the Mikve, and ran to the synagogue for the morning service. The 12th day of the month of Iyar 5668 (May 13th 1908), Rabbi Massud died. His son, Rabbi Israel, was 18 years old, but he was already a Gaon, from which the fear overtook the wisdom. The Jews from Tefilalet begged him to become officially rabbi, in spite of his young age, and be the spiritual leader of the Yeshiva. The modest Rabbi Israel tried to refuse, but the Jews from Tefilalet knew it would be very difficult to find a man as holy as him. They insisted so much that he finally accepted.
In 5724 (1963-64), he settled in Yavne in Israel, then moved to Ashkelon, and finally Netivot in 5730 (1969-70), inwhich he stayed until his death the 4th of Chevat 5744 (January 8th 1984). Since then, a yearly pilgrimage on his grave on the day of his death is the occasion for a big gathering of Jews from Morrocco.

In this 8 audio cassettes box, 7 singers (Samy Elmaghribi, Rabbin Haïm Louk, Cheikh Mouizo, Albert Souissa, Emile Zarihan, Maxime Michali et Mordekhaï Bouzaglo), honor the memory of Baba Sale).
