Detail Description

First edition of this Midrashic commentary on the weekly Torah readings by R. Alexander Ziskind (Zusha) ben Abraham ha-Kohen (d. 1837), av bet din of Shelits Plotsk.. The title-page informs that R. Alexander Ziskind was the foremost student of R. [Simhah] Bunim of Przysucha. In place of an approbation is a letter from R. Simhah Bunim to the author copied from the sefer Kol Simhah and by five other rabbis. Below the letter is an introduction (approbation) from R. Isaac Meir ben Alter of Ger who writes that the book is entitled Yakar mi-Paz because it alludes to his holy name. The text is arranged by the parasha followed at the end of the volume by discourses on the Megillot, Psalms, and likkutim.
