Detailed Description   

Aggadic selections from the Talmud sections of the Hok le-Yisrael by R. Hayyim Vital. R. Hayyim Vital, the foremost of the disciples of the Ari z”l, advocated textual study as a means to mystical contemplation. This work, intended for study each morning, is a compendium of the Parasha of the week with parts of the prophets and various Mishnayot, sections of Talmud, halakhot for each day of the year, and Kabbalistic literature.

In 1847 the Shapira printing press was established by the three brothers Hanina Lipa, Aryeh Leib, and Joshua Heschel Shapira, sons of R. Samuel Abraham Abba Shapira, the printer in Slavuta. Until 1862 this was one of the only two Hebrew presses the Russian government permitted to operate in the whole of Russia, the other being in Vilna. This press had 18 hand presses and four additional large presses. In 1851 Aryeh Leib broke away and established his own printing press in Zhitomir. In these two establishments only sacred books of every kind were printed.
