Document affirming a gentleman's marriage suitability by R. Meir Avihazira, the Baba Meir, (1917-1983) rabbi, kabbalist, and educator. He was born in Tafilalet, Morocco to R. Israel Avihazira - the Baba Saleh, and his mother Frecha. At the age of 25, he was rabbinically ordained and appointed President of the Rabbinical Court of Midalet and director of Yeshivat Tomchei Temimim in the city. In 1951 (5711), he replaced his father as head of the Rabbinical Court of Erfoud. In 1965 (5725) he immigrated to the Holy Land and settled in Ashdod. Many visitors flocked to his home to ask for blessings and were saved by his prayers. His court was one of the largest and most visited in the entire country.
He left this world on Chol Hamoed Pesach 1983 (5743) when he was barely 66.
