Detail Description

Collection of wondrous tales about the righteous compiled by R. Abraham b. Arye Zev Yellin (.1934). The title-page describes Derekh Zadikim as tales of deeds, true, awesome, and astounding. New, not previously published, of our righteous, holy, rabbis. All those who read will take delight. Next is a list of thirty-six Zadikim, beginning with the Ari ha-kadosh and his student R. Hayyim Vital, followed by 2) R. Naphtali Katz from Posen, 3) the gaon Rabbenu Jonathon Eyebeshuts of Prague, 4) the gaon R. Elijah of Vilna, concluding with 36) R. Jehiel Meir  rav of Gastnin. There is an introduction, followed by the text. The wondrous tales are from the Berdichever, the Kedushat Levi; R. David of Kolov; another from the Berdichever; and concluding with an awesome occurrence concerning R. Abraham Joshua Heschel of Apta. Derekh Zadikim is a less sell-known collection of tales, adding to its inherent value.
