A Short Tribute
Hacham David Kadosch was born to Rina and Hacham Yosef Kadosch on 2 Tishrei, 5677 (1917), in Marrakesh, Morocco. All his brothers, born before he was, died in childbirth. His mother made a pilgrimage to the Tzaddik Rabbi David Liskar's tomb, and following her prayers, Hacham David Kadosch was born and granted life. He was named after Rabbi David Liskar.
Hacham David acquired much of his Torah learning from Hacham Yaacov Dahan. He was preaching in public by the time he was Bar Mitzvah age and would be the one to repeat Talmud lessons (Shi'urim) to students.
Hacham David Kadosch founded the Ahavat Shalom Society, whose goal was to reconcile man and wife, and to establish peaceful relations between individuals in general.
He eventually immigrated to the Holy Land and settled in the city of Nahariya.
Hacham David Kadosch passed away on 2 Tishrei, the second day of Rosh Hashanah 5749 (1989), and was buried in Jerusalem. After his death, his sons published Lev David – LeHaMagid MeMarrakesh, in which they collected Torah learning they had heard and learned from their father.
