Detailed Description   

R. Jacob Koppel b. Moses Lipschutz of Mezhirech (d. c. 1740), Polish kabbalist. His main published works are: Sha'arei Gan Eden (Korets, 1803), a major kabbalistic treatise, dealing with all facets of kabbalistic theosophy, following the school of R. Isaac Luria; and Ha-Kol Kol Ya'akov (Slaviuta, 1804), a formulation of the Lurianic kavvanot (the mystical intentions and meditations during prayer). This work served as a basis for later hasidic prayer books. Besides these he apparently wrote Nahalot Ya'akov, an extensive commentary on the Zohar, which has been lost. R. Jacob denounces the followers of Shabbetai Zevi and messianic speculation in general in a few scattered remarks. R. Jacob and his writings were highly praised by the early Hasidim, who published his works and used them extensively. A reliable hasidic tradition even quotes some words of praise attributed to R. Israel b. Eliezer Ba'al Shem Tov.
