Detail Description

Moral, ethical, halachic, and Kabbalistic work. The Hida's literary activity is of an astonishing breadth. It embraces every department of rabbinical literature: exegesis, homiletics, casuistry, Kabbalah, liturgics, and literary history. Many were often reprinted.

R. Hayyim Yoseph David Azulai (known by his Hebrew acronym HIDA, 1724–1806), halakhist, kabbalist, emissary, and bibliographer. The Hida was born in Jerusalem; he was descended on his father's side from a prominent family of rabbis and kabbalists from Spain while his mother was a daughter of Joseph Bialer who had gone to Erez Israel with R. Judah Hasid in 1770. He studied under some of the outstanding Jewish scholars of his age including R. Jonah Navon, R. Isaac ha-Kohen Rapoport, and R. Hayyim ibn Attar. R. Azulai attained early eminence in Jewish studies and was regarded by the Jewry of the Ottoman Empire and of Italy as the leading scholar of his generation. He was highly esteemed, too, by the Jews of Germany, especially after the publication of his works.


Hebrew Description:

[גימטריא חיים יוסף דוד י"ב] ... נדפס שנית בתוספת קצת תפלות שסדרתי ונסח וידוי ... והנה צורף קונטרי' לב דוד ...

סדר תפילה.
דף יז-לו: "יוסף לחק".סדר לימוד יומי. בדרך כלל מצורף לספר "חק לישראל".
"לב דוד" לא צורף לספר הנוכחי, אלא נדפס לחוד באותה שנה.
