Detailed Description:   

Commentary to the Jerusalem Talmud, Seder Mo'ad by R. Elijah b. Abraham Solomon ha-Kohen ha-Itamari (<1640-1729). He was born in Smyrna, where he was educated by R. Benjamin Melamed (he recods the eulogy in Midrash Elijah), a leading Rabbi of Izmir (Smyrna) and became a homiletic preacher. R. Elijah's opposition to Shabbetai Zevi and his associates earned him much grief at home. He apparently cared for orphans as his writings display an extremely detailed knowledge of the physical and psychological suffering of the poor. A prolific writer he is best remembered for his ethical work Shevet Mussar (Rod of Admonition), which has seen numerous editions and been translated into many languages. The first edition of Shevet Mussar was issued in Constantinople in 1712.
