Prayers and selihot for Hoshana Rabbah by R. Hananiah Eliakim b. Asael Raphael Rieti (1561-c.1623). He was born in Bologna and a member of the prominent Rieti banking family. R. Rieti was educated by R. Judah Muscato and served as rabbi in Manyua from 1589 and afterwards, from 1604 in Luzzaro. He was a primary founder of the Shomerim la-Boker Society in Mantua, contributing liturgical verse to Ayelet ha-Shahar, the prayer book compiled for the Society by R. Mordecai Jare. The title page of Mekiz Redumim (Arouse those who slumber) states that it is "the correct and valid order to be said prior to the break of dawn on the great day, the day of the aravah (willow):' Mekiz Redumim was brought to press by Rieti's son, R. David Naphtali.
The text is comprised of the liturgy to be recited on Hoshana Rabbah by the Shomerim la-Boker Society. Mekiz Redumim is set in a single column in square vocalized Hebrew, excepting brief instructions which are in rabbinic letters. This is the first edition of Mekiz Redumim. In addition to Mekiz Redumim and the liturgy in Ayyelet ha- Shahar, Rieti wrote additional hymns included in several other liturgical compilations as well as others extant in manuscript, and Peri Megadim, novellae on tractates of the Talmud; a work entitled Sadeh ha-Lavan, responsa; and Sedeh Tappuhim, commentaries, all unpublished.
והוא סדר (לאשמורת הבקר) ... לאמרו קודם עלות השחר ביו’ ... הערבה (הושענה רבה) חברו ותקנו ... ר’ חנניה אליקים מריאיטי (בן כמה"ר עשאל רפאל זצ"ל), והביאו אל הדפוס בנו ... ר’ דוד נפתלי יצ"ו לזכות את הרבים (ק"ק בני נורצי, פה מנטובה) ...
בהוצאה זו נשמטו הקדמות המחבר ובנו.
