The Ben Ish Hai. Rabbenu Yosef Haim. The author of  Rav Pe’alim, Ben Ish Hai, and many other precious works and sefarim…the  paradigm of total humility even amidst his towering greatness…the hacham  whose ruah hakodesh and special level of holiness and connection to Hashem  allowed him to perform astounding miracles on behalf of the Jewish people…

Who was this righteous and holy tzaddik, this giant  of Sephardic Jewry whose Torah teachings and halachic responsa from Bavel  spread throughout the entire Jewish world, influencing Jewish history forever;  the one about whom it is said that there is no one in our generation like him  in his expertise in the words of kabbalah and the Ari zt”l?

In this magnificent biography of the Ben Ish Hai,  Yehuda Azoulay, noted author of A Legacy of Leaders Volumes I and II, as well  as founder of the Sephardic Legacy Series, paints an accurate and vivid  portrait of this multi-faceted tzaddik and hacham. Readers will emerge from  this book with a most profound understanding of the life and the times of the  Ben Ish Hai, as well as an unprecedented appreciation for who this tremendous  posek hador was.
