Detail Description

First edition of this ethical work on evil speech by R. Israel Meir Ha-Kohen (Hafez Hayyim, 1838–1933) is one of the most saintly figures in modern Judaism. Of humble origin, he was taught until the age of ten by his parents and then went to Vilna where he continued his studies. His surname Poupko is hardly known to even those who revere him; he is always referred to as Hafez Hayyim after the Sefer Hafez Hayyim, his first book. Hafez Hayyim’s personality, piety, humility of conduct, integrity of thought and action, together with his books, exercised a tremendous influence on religious leaders, and fascinated the general Jewish public, to whom he became a much beloved leader and moral guide. Hundreds of sayings full of practical wisdom are attributed to him, and hundreds of stories both factual and legendary, all rich in morals, are reported about his life.

בו יבואר... במה להנצל מאיסור לשה"ר [לשון הרע] ושאר חלקי דיבור האסור, ולהזדרז לעשות תשובה ע"ז [על זה] החטא... ובחתימת הקונטרס הזכרתי התקנות שעשינו בענין הזה. חובר מאתי ישראל מאיר הכהן...

עמ' 60-38: קונטרס ליקוטי אמרים.
