Aharon Amram was born in Sana'a, Yemen, in 1939. His father, Rabbi Shlomo Amram, worked as a messenger for the Av Bet-Din (chief of the courthouse), and officiated as the head of the psalm readers company. His mother, Romia, the daughter of a Rabbi, in addition to raising her own seven children, also took care of orphans, who were transferred to Sana'a, out of the fear that they would be converted to Islam. In his youth, Aharon Amram studied torah studies with Sana'a's best teachers, while also learning Math, History and Hebrew in a Jewish school.
