Rabbi Shabtai Teicher is a rav and mekubal (kabbalist) who has been teaching, and teaching the hidden secrets of the Torah, for the past 35 years in Jerusalem. He is a descendant of Rebbe Shalom Dov Ber of Lubavitch (and his wife is a descendant of the Noam Elimelech and the Degel Efraim.)
He is also one of the teachers of Rabbi Nati of this blog.
He has a special way of bringing people to the deepest secrets of the Torah, relating to people on the most practical earthly level while introducing them to the secrets of Heaven. He has written several books in English on some difficult parts of the Zohar - though they are not openly published but distributed to select seekers of such knowledge.
This morning he had a stroke and is being treated in Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital in Jerusalem at this time.
Mystical Paths wishes HaRav Shabtai ben Devorah Pearl a refuah shalayma, a complete and speedy recovery, and we kindly request you add him to your tefillot (prayers).
