Rabbi Chaim Shaul Dweck HaCohen was born in Aleppo, Syria. One of the great Torah scholars and Kabbalists of Jerusalem, the Rabbi studied Kabbalah from his youth and taught it to the greatest Rabbis his whole life. The Rabbi came to Israel in 1890 and joined the Yeshivat Beit El and became the Rosh HaYeshiva eventually. In 1898, the Rabbi served as Rosh HaYeshiva of Yeshivat Rechovot HaNahar. The Rabbi authored the Sefer “Eiphah Shleimah.” During the last twenty years of his life the Rabbi was blind and learned Kabbala entirely by heart. The Rabbi wrote a commentary on the writings of The Ari (Rabbi Yitzchak Luria).
