Detail Description

Second edition of hasidic discourses by R. Gedaliah ben Issac Rabbinowitz of Lunietz (Ilintsky). The author was a contemporary of the Ba’al Shem Tov and a disciple of R. Dov Baer, the maggid of Mezhirech (d. 1772) and R. Jacob Joseph of Polonnoye (Toledot Ya’akov Yosef, d. c. 1782). The title page begins with several lines of praise for the book, including that it is sweeter for the palate than old wine. These discourses were given by R. Gedalia in the various locations in which he served as rabbi. There are approbations on the verso of the title page from R. Levi Isaac ben Meir of Berdichev (1740-1810), R. Israel ben Levi Isaac, and R. Samuel Judah ben Gedaliah Rabbinowitz, the author’s son. Next is the introduction, which was heard from R. Gedaliah. The homilies in Teshu’ot Hen are are organized by the weekly parsha. A number of the discourses emphasize the importance and holiness of Erez Israel, expressing a profound sense of the bitterness of exile and anticipation of redemption. The Initial word of the text is enclosed in decorative frame. The text is in two columns in rabbinic type excepting headers and initial words which are in square letters. Teshu’ot Hen is printed on blue paper.
