Detail Description

Only edition of this commentary on Maimonides and his commentators on hilkhot Shehitah, seder ha-get, and halitzah by R. Abraham Ankawa. The text is comprised of the Rambam in the center of the page in square letters, accompanied by the Kesef Mishneh and Maggid Mishneh and R. Ankawa’s super commentary, Zevahim Shelamim, all in rabbinic type. Zevahim Shelamim is, therefore, a double commentary to Maimonides’ rules of ritual slaughter, together with the Maggid Mishneh, with source references by Judah Alkalaz: included in the volume are Get Mekushar and Seder Halizah, on the arrangements for the bill of divorce and for halizah by R. Judah ibn Attar and R. Jacob Ibn Zur.

R. Abraham Ben Mordecai Ankawa (b. 1810), rabbi and kabbalist. R. Ankawa was born in Salé (Morocco). His family, probably of Spanish origin, had settled in Tlemcen (Algeria) and in Salé, where his father, Mordecai, was president of the community for a time. After serving as dayyan in his native town, R. Ankawa traveled to Leghorn about 1838 to arrange the printing of his first works. On his return he journeyed to many towns in Morocco and the Oran district, seeking material for his halakhic works. He was particularly interested in the unpublished research and rulings of old Castilian and North African rabbis, making extensive use of these and the works of authoritative European writers. His visits were usually short, but he stayed three years in Tlemcen and founded a talmudic academy there. He made a second trip to Leghorn in 1858.

The following works by Ankawa have been published: Zekhor le-Avraham (Leghorn, 1838), the rules of terefot in verse form, with a commentary based mainly on manuscripts by authoritative Fez writers, and an appendix containing four liturgical poems for the New Year by Spanish poets; Hukkat ha-Pesah (1843), an Arabic paraphrase of memorial verses for seder nights; Kol Tehinnah (1843), prayers for fasts and a few elegies; Hesed le-Avraham or Sha'ar ha-Shamayim (1845), a prayer book for the whole year arranged in accordance with the teachings of R. Isaac Luria, containing the "Idra Zuta," various mystical prayers, formulas, directions, and explanations: this prayer book was later published in several revised editions and under various titles (Kol Bo, Limmudei ha-Shem, etc.); Homer ha-Dat he-Attik (1844), a summary of Shefa Tal by Shabbetai Sheftel R. Horowitz, printed as an appendix to R. Hayyim Vital's Ozerot Hayyim; Yuzza la-Rabbim (1858) concerning a dispute between Ankawa and some Algers rabbis; Kerem Hemed (1869–71), responsa in two volumes arranged according to the four parts of Shulhan Arukh: the second volume also contains Sefer ha-Takkanot, the statutes of the Castilian communities in Fez (since 1492) and Et Sofer, on legal documents. The Sefer ha-Takkanot is based on a copy which was completed by Jacob ibn Zur in 1698, and also contains Kizzut Takkanot, after the version of R. Raphael Berdugo (no. 196). Unpublished works of R. Ankawa include: Ozar Hokhmah, an abstract of Hayyim Vital's Ozerot Hayyim; Afra de-Avraham and Millel le-Avraham, homilies; Seivat Avraham, novellae to a few talmudic tractates; and a Hebrew translation of the Arabic paraphrase of the Decalogue, formerly ascribed to Rav Saadiah Gaon.

 

Hebrew Description

על הי"ד פרקים הלכות שחיטה להנשר הגדול... הרמב"ם... [עם הפנים]. ועליו סביב חונה: פי' כסף אחר, שקיל וטרי בדברי רבינו, מצד אחד, והצד האחר דינים השייכים להלכות שחיטות ובדיקות מראשונים ואחרונים (ובפרט כי אנה ה' לידי ספר א' כת"י הנקרא זבחי רצון, מהרב... שלמה אבן צור ז"ל אשר הוא כבר קדמני באסיפה זאת ועל פיו סמכתי ברובי הלכות אשר אספתי בספרי זה... ואמרתי הדבר בשם אומרו), הנקרא זבחים שלמים. ומתחת... ספר מגיד משנה להרב ... יהודה אלכלאץ זלה"ה. וגם... סדר הגט על סדר א"ב... (אשר סדרתי... מדברי מרן [ר' יוסף קארו] ודברי האחרונים) וקראתי בשם גט מקושר. ובסופו סדר החליצה... מכתבי... כמוהריב"ע (יהודה ן' עטר) וכמוהר"ר יעב"ץ (יעקב אבן-צור) זיע"א ... הכל... מיד... ר' אברהם אנקאווא... בשנת ו'ה'י'ה' ה'' ל'מ'ל'ך' ע'ל' כ'ל' ה'א'ר'ץ'

בפרט השנה יש לחשב שם הוי"ה במלואו.

"ספר מגיד משנה" הנדפס כאן נדפס אחר כך (מתוך כתב-יד) בתוך משנה תורה לרמב"ם, הוצאת ווארשא תרמ"א-תרמ"ב (ובהוצאות הבאות) כחיבורו של ר' וידאל די טולושה. המחבר האמיתי הוא ר'יהודה ב"ר שלמה כאלאץ (השני). עיין: ש"ז הבלין, קרית ספר, מט, תשל"ד, עמ' 643 ואילך.

"סדר החליצה" הועתק מכתבי ר' יהודה ן' עטר. מכתבי ר' יעקב אבן צור הועתקו "שמות האנשים (שמות הנשים)... לצורך כתיבת הגטין, על סדר אלפא ביתא". עי' ביקורתו של יוסף צעדנר, המזכיר, I, 1858, עמ' 113.

לאחר הדפסת הספר יצאו עליו עוררים. העורך והמביא לדפוס, ר' אברהם אנקאווא, השיב על ההשגות בספרו טהרת הכסף, ליוורנו תר"ך.

הסכמה: רבני ליוורנו: ר' אברהם ברוך פיפירנו, ר' יצחק חיים נוניס אלוארינגה ור' אברהם טולוסא, שלהי שבט תרי"ח.
