Jewish History

R. Avraham was a famous kabbalist who resided in Hebron, Jerusalem, and Gaza. He authored Chesed L’Avraham, and was the great-grandfather of R. Chaim Yosef David Azulai (the Chida).

R. Avraham’s signature had the appearance of a ship, to commemorate the time when the ship he was traveling on capsized along with all his possessions, and he was miraculously saved (Shem Hagedolim).
