Rabbi Bar Ami is a Sofer Sta’m (Torah Scribe) specializing in the renovation and repair

of old Torah scrolls.

In 1985, he was asked to undertake a mission on behalf of the Ministry of Religious

Affairs in collaboration with the Chief Rabbinate in the Netherlands – to check the

condition of the Torah scrolls that remained in the Netherlands after the Holocaust. For

an entire year he visited all the synagogues there and examined the condition of their

them while the remainder were put back on their shelves.

Torah Scrolls in the Yemenite Tradition.

A special mission ahead for Rabbi Bar-Ami is to clearly prove without any doubt the

absolute kashrut status (hechsher) of the Yemenite Torah scrolls that are parallel to the

Aleppo Codex (צובא ארם כתר in Hebrew, Keter Aram Tzova, transliterated.) All changes

between Yemenite Torah scrolls and other Torah scrolls based and written on the

Pillars of the Eternal Tradition of The People of Israel, prove that Yemenite Torahs are a

direct tradition from the Torah that was written by Moshe Rabbenu!!!

Personal Greeting from the Lubavitcher Rebbe:

Rabbi Bar-Ami had a personal tie and multiple encounters with the Lubavitcher Rebbe,

Menachem Mendel Schneerson . The Rebbe encouraged and strengthened Rabbi

throughout their relationship until his passing, June 12, 1994 (3 Tammuz 5754),

ultimately guiding Rabbi to create a special work of art to help couples unable to bear

children. This work of art is still distributed free to any couple who are married for at

least one year and a half and have not yet been able to conceive. Baruch Hashem,

Rabbi Bar-Ami is proud to share that for more than 3000 (!!!) couples throughout the

world over the past 30 years, after receiving the piece of art from him, they were

blessed with children.

At the last meeting with the Rebbe… the Rebbe emphasized to him, repeating it

three times, “Ata Tevarech! Ata Tevarech! Ata Tevarech!” (“You will bless! You

will bless! You will bless!”)

In 1995, together with Ms. Dr. Idit Yankelowitz, he founded a national organization

named “HEY-LI” – the Main Organization for Certified Healers in Israel, using his unique

method of healing. The core subject is Jewish Energy Healing. Rabbi combines many

alternative and integrative methods such as channeling universal energy and more. Due

to the depth of his knowledge in Kabbalah Wisdom, acquired through studying with

several famous Kabbalists combined with the majority of his wisdom gleaned from his

Yemenite family tradition of more than 500 years, he demonstrates that these healing

method tools were also used in days past according to the wisdom of Kabbalah.

Rabbi is invited all over the world to conduct seminars in Jewish Energy Healing

according to the sources of the Kabbalah in addition to classes teaching the Hebrew

letter secrets in the Holy Scripts, including their special power.

Rehovot – an attractive destination attracting tourists, educators and students from all

over the world.

1) Ohr-Lev: an educational organization for alternative/integrative medicine according to

ancient Jewish sources.

3) The traveling Holy Script Museum located in Miami, Florida.
