A Short Tribute
Hacham Moshe Abirmat (Abormad) was born circa 1878 in Taroudant, Morocco, in the Sous valley district of south Morocco. As a young man he studied in Marrakesh, the capital city of south Morocco and a city of scholars and kabbalists, and attended Hacham David Shlush's yeshiva. However, he acquired most of his learning on his own in his home town, from books.
Hacham Moshe Abirmat officiated as the Taroudant community's rabbi and spiritual leader for decades. There were no yeshivot or study houses in Taroudant in his day, aside from a few heder learning settings where children were taught reading and Chumash, but the excelling pupils were taught and educated by Hacham Moshe Abirmat.
Hacham Moshe Abirmat passed away in Taroudant on 27 Tammuz 5719. His son, René Kalifa Abirmat, had his book, VaYomer Moshe, published.
