Synopsis

Only four biographical details are known about Rabbi Shalom Shabazi. We do not have any drawings describing his features. However, it seems that 400 years after his birth, Shabazy is still an extremely popular poet that keeps living in an entire community's collective soul. Who was Shabazy? A poet that committed filicide? Maybe a wedding singer looking for alms? Perhaps a fundamentalist Kabbalah scholar?
