Detail Description

Rare edition of this popular kabbalistic work on the order of Tu Bish’vat with some Ladino. Written by an unknown author, Pri Etz Hadar was included in the Sefer Ḥemdat Yamim by R. Yisrael Yakov Ben Yom Tov Algazi (1680-1756), the father of the Maharit Algazi, a friend of the Hida, the Rosh Yeshiva of Beit El in Jerusalem. One of the great mekubalim of his time, R. Algazi’s name added greatly to the credibility of Hemdat Yamim despite its attribution by Rabbi Yaakov Emden (and modern scholars) to Nathan of Gaza (1643-1680) the 17th century mystic who greatly encouraged the aspiring messiah Shabbtai Tzvi. Sefer Hemdat Yamim remains a major source of kabbalistic minhagim (customs) still practiced by followers of the Ari z”l’s school of Jewish mysticism in the Ashkanzi (Hasidim), Temani (Shami), Sefaradi, and Mizrachi Jewish communities.

והוא סדר ט"ו בשבט להרב בעל חמדת ימים ז"ל, הובא פעם שלישי[!] לבית הדפוס ע"י... יאודה ירושלמי...

מעבר לשער "התנצלות המסדר" יצחק עוזיאל. בצורת שיר, בלאדינו.

על פי שאלוניקי תק"ס, בשינויים

חלק מן ההסברים וההלכות כאן תורגמו ללאדינו (למשל בדפים ב, כב-כד), ומקצת ההסברים קוצרו. נוסף שיר בעמ’ האחרון: "בקשה של הרב ישראל נאג’אר", פותחת: יוצר הכל למי יחפוץ. אוצר השירה והפיוט, ב, עמ’ 361 מס’ 2202. ‬
