Detail Description

Ten discourses by R. Zevi Hirsch ben Shimon ha-Kohen Bloch. The discourses are intended, as described on the title page, to explain biblical passages, sayings of the sages that are difficult, and to be insightful on deep and complex subjects, and to join the tent of the Torah and wisdom to be one. It was brought to press by the author’s son, Abraham Abba, and grandson, Hayyim Judah Leib. The title page from “Your two breasts are like two fawns, twins of a gazelle (Te’omi Zeviah)” (Song of Songs 7:4). The title page is dated, “for you have I seen righteous ראיתי (621 = 1861) before me” (Genesis 7:1). There are introductions from the author and his grandson, followed by approbations from R. Jacob Zevi ben Gamliel Mecklenburg, R. Judah Bachrach, R. Moses Isaac Avigdor, and R. Mordecai ben Asher Kalazka. Next are the names of the sponsors, over four pages in three columns to a page, who made publication possible, arranged alphabetically by city. The text is preceded by a proposal הצעה from R. Bloch, based on a statement of R. Moses Luzzatto, in which he defines his purpose. This is followed by a lengthy introduction, and the text, set in two columns in rabbinic type.
