Kabbalah, Halacha, Mussar.
Rabbi Avraham Chachamovits is a great disseminator of Torah mysticism in South America. He is the author of hundreds of works – books, shiurim in audio and videos. He idealized e directs the Beit Ari”zal: the first and only kollel dedicated to kosher Jewish mysticism in Brazil, and this site that publishes his material. He teaches Torah in an intense manner, based on righteousness and focused on tikkun hamiddot (“character rectification”). Rabbi Avraham struggles to promote Judaism based on the prophets of the Tanach, and the original holy masters of Torah, in particular on the deep teachings of the Ari”zal. He does not subscribe the more popular “Kabbalah” – theoretical and philosophical – that is widely taught today by unlearned Jews, and even worst, when done by non-Jews who do not know Torah, while benefiting from trends and general public ignorance. The path of Rabbi Avraham is of righteousness and kosher spiritual experiences, not academism. His works include many chiddushim (“new Torah insights”), and he is also dedicated to the understanding of Torah and modern science convergence, as well as to Torah psychology (the core of Jewish mysticism), and to contemporary classical compositions. He has both symphonic and chambers works. Rabbi Avraham has students in various countries. Moreover, he cares for gentiles who seek proper Torah spirituality for the nations through the Seven Laws of Noach. He believes in a naturalistic lifestyle, frugal and happy, while recluse.

Berklee College of Music Alumni (Bachelor's in Jazz guitar/composition) in 1986. In additional to Berklee College, in 1985 joined the Boston Conservatory to become the last private student of well-known master of composition and counterpoint, the late professor emeritus Dr. Hugo Norden. Later he was accepted and became a Florida State University’s Alumni, graduated (Masters) in Music Composition & Conducting, with minor in Computer Science. A Mensa candidate, Rabbi Avraham was self taught in many computer programming languages ans hi-tech systems, as well as the sciences. That led to his work in the development of Science and in Technology for many years in the U.S. (receiving a special work VISA for the Arts & Science), including Artificial Intelligence works for The Juilliard School of Music, Lincoln Center, N.Y., also, as an Apple Macintosh Partner and in the mid-90 for EDS Corp. Later became the Director of Technology for Bellsouth/Safra Corp. His last non-rabbinical work was done as the Vice-President of Technology/CIO for Sprint/Nextel Corporation (1999). Rabbi Avraham studied and was deeply influenced by the famous mystic, HaRav Yitzchak Ginsburgh shlit"a (Gal Enai - Israel), but soon after began intensely developing his own path of Torah Kabbalah. He studied for his smicha (rabbinical ordination) as an Avreich Kolel at the Beis Medrash "Beis Yitzchak" (Satmar) with his rav, HaGaon HaRav Meir Avraham Iliovits shlit"a. Before completion, however, he had to shift focus and assume full time the position of Rosh Kolel ("head of study") for his own Beit Arizal, the first and only house of study for kosher mystical Judaism in South America.
