Six years ago at my workplace our eyes crossed for the first time. His look was so profound that it was impossible for me to keep my gaze. However, that look was enough for him, because through those eyes he was able to see how weak and frail my state of health was, something I was careful to conceal, so much so that many people I saw everyday were taken by surprise when they learnt about my real condition.
Rather than being neutral, he came back the next day and asked to see my mother, claiming that he was perfectly aware of my situation and willing to help me. Our meeting was arranged, and what happened next is not within the bounds of earthly logic or reason, as he assured me that I had healed, and that I needn’t fear because he had come to Bueno Aires only to cure me, and his mission had been accomplished.
It was the last time I took medicine, and to date I am the only person that medicine acknowledges has fully recovered from this disease – I still remember about the scientific impossibility to treat my condition. So I wonder – can one find words to thank him enough? How can I express this sincere feeling of love and gratitude I experience at all times? I have no answer, as it is mind-boggling. One thing I know for sure: I feel privileged for having been blessed with meeting him, and then becoming the conduit of help for so many people in distress.
Love and eternal gratitude from the bottom of my soul to this extraordinary being of light,
Abraham Ben Flor (Berto)
My One and Only Dearest Admor, I thank Hashem for having put you in my path.
You take a very special place in my daily life, and support me in all my decisions. I’ll never forget when you asked me to give you my handkerchief and I handed it to you, because you liked it… that was many years ago. I dreamt that you wore it all day… but I know that even as time goes by, we are still strongly communicated whenever I need you.
You ARE a special being and I cannot thank you enough for everything you do for my family. You are always present for the General and the sons and daughters-in-law, and I talk every day to your photo and share everything with you. I know you listen and pray. Thank you!!!!!
Thank you for teaching me, for taking care of me, for being there for me. You are the best that ever happened to me in life, thank you for loving us. Whenever I see you I feel deeply moved, and I am always looking forward to your traveling to Buenos Aires.
Lots of love,
Diana N. bat Malka
We'd like to thank you because, even though we had never met you before, you broke the big news to us that we were expecting a baby. We were impressed. And so it was. It is proof of the special energy that you have and we'll remember forever. Thank you for the great news!
Florencio and Leon S.
I'd like to thank you once again for all you have done for my healing. All your Refuah petitions have been heeded, and BH tomorrow, May 15, I will be celebrating my 12th birthday.
Please remember our pact; I'll be waiting for you next year to celebrate my Bar Mitzva together with all my family.
I love you, thank you for giving so much without expecting anything in return. Shalom, Shalom!!!

Some need words and some need gestures.
The Admor needs nothing but the vigor of his gaze and intensity of his presence. From the depth of his being, he helped me find resilience and peace at a particular moment of my life. His sensibility and profound wisdom make him as magic as he is real.
The Admor is wonderful. He blesses our lives with love and light.
Dear his Eminence Admor ,
I must start by saying that this letter is overdue. I have been wanting to write it for a very long time but unfortunately my life hasn't been easy in every aspect starting with Jacob GurArie's health, my personal life and the divorce and finally my move to Florida.
We are all caught in our everyday lives but one thing for sure you are one person I think of and come in our conversations often. I think of you for many reasons Admor. I must say that I am very blessed that my path crossed me to you.
I feel very lucky and fortunate to have met you and I can say that you have changed the lives of many around me including mine. When I first met you, I was pregnant with my baby that we all knew was going to have a lot of complications when he would be born. But unfortunately we didn't know how bad his health situation would be until he came into this world March 21, 2012 and that's when it all began.
Actually I must say it began a bit before when the first time I saw you on FaceTime with my brother Moshe and I was very nervous to meet you because I had heard a lot of great and miraculous things you had done. So when I saw you in camera a sense of calm and relief came to my soul. I felt already protected by you, I can't explain why but that was my first impression of you and from that moment Admor from Malta came to my mind and my language often when speaking with Moshe and David.
I still remember your first words: be positive, believe in the light and uncross your arms (Admor says no good to cross the arms). After that I delivered my beautiful baby boy Jacob (named after my father). I remember asking David and Moshe to always stay in contact with you for a blessing for Jacob and you were always there to respond no matter what time of the day it was. I remember going to them to contact you when Jacob was very very sick and I remember at that time I hadn't named him yet and you were again always there to give us the best of advice and mostly blessings for Jacob.
Here are a few things Admor said:
1. "Admor says that Esther needs to get C-section" - I was almost going to deliver naturally when Doctors came at the last minute to tell me "You will have a C-section". Once again you always knew what was about to happen.
2. "This little boy needs to have his name" and right away we did Jacob's naming on a Thursday morning at the synagogue.
3. "Tell Esther she needs to light up 12 candles and read this" And right away it was done because I believed that Admor was looking out for Jacob.
4. "We need to add him a second name and Admor will come back with the best name" and I had tears and lots of tears when David called me that you had opened the Sefer Torah and you couldn't believe what a special name came to you... "GurArie (Baby Lion)"
5. "Tell Esther GurArie is fighting for his life because she fought for him", it was so special what you had told my brother Moshe to tell me.
6. "Tell Esther Jacob GurArie needs to have bris" and with your blessings and guidance Jacob was lucky to have a Mohel do his Surgery and at the same time perform the circumcision. It was a sign that his Dr was also a Mohel.
7. I also remember you saying to Moshe "Don't worry, tell Esther Jacob will have Bar Mitzvah". Again your words were the best thing a mother in my position would want to hear.
8. Admor said once again tell Doctors Admor says Jacob is not to be removed from the machine and I fought hard with Doctors because I believed Admor was right and knew what was best for Jacob.
I remember my brother Moshe & David always telling me don't worry Admor is praying for him and said he is going to be ok.... All I needed to hear at the moment was your blessing and your comforting voice. I was also very fortunate to have my brother Moshe make Jacob hold the pendant you did for him when he was in Malta with you. Every sign from you was a blessing.
I remember when Jacob was going to go to surgery on a Sunday I found out on Saturday and told my brother please write to Admor so that when Shabbat is over he can see it and again I hear my brother after always replied to ALL our messages.
I also remember Moshe always telling me you know Admor is praying a lot for Baby Jacob like never before. I know Admor you love my brother a lot and you consider him like a son but I also know Moshe loves you very much and always speaks very highly of you and we all know why - You always look out for us and you are always there to watch over us when we need you.
A lot of your words came to my mind many times like the time you said:
- You will have a boy.... and I had a boy!
- You will see he will have beautiful eyes and every time I am with Jacob I have everyone telling me that he has beautiful eyes.
(all this was before Jacob GurArie was even born) I always asked myself how does Admor know? But again I just don't ask myself anymore because you are so powerful and I saw with my own eyes everything you did.
Also came the time when I was fortunate to meet you for the first time at Rosh Hashanah with Moshe and I was very nervous to meet The Malta but it was the best thing that happened to me to be there with Jacob GurArie and You. I remember you saying to me "Jacob will be very smart but will not like school you will have to push him" by watching Jacob play everyday I see what a smart little boy he is and how your words come to mind.
I want to end this letter by first of all saying Thank you for all you have done for my son Jacob GurArie and myself. You are a blessing in our homes, the Admor I look at for the best blessings and miracles. I must say that we are very lucky we met you and you came to our lives when I needed you the most and when all hope was gone I just remembered your words and all was good.
Thank you for saving my son!
Esther B. & Jacob GurArie B. L.
Thank you for being part of my life and teaching me a lot of things. Every time I have a problem, you are the person who listens to me and gives me the best advice, please never change. I hope we can share more things and be together for the rest of our lives.
Wishing you love and light,
Thank you for always being there for us and accompanying us through the most important moments of our lives. Your words and advice are always a learning experience. Having you near is a blessing.
All the Love and Light for you,
Deborah and Rafael G.
Since the first time I met you, I've been amazed - you didn't know anything about me, but you were able to change my life, and you released me from all the negativity that surrounded me all that time. I really admire your capacity and vocation to help and cure people. It is gratifying to see people come back from tough situations because of your blessings.
I am tremendously grateful for the two wonderful weddings that you made for Mendel and Anabella, and I hope we can continue sharing happy moments together.
Wishing you all light and blessings.
With lots of love,
