An abridgment of R. Isaac Luria's (Ari ha-Kodesh) Sefer ha-Kavvanot by R. Abraham ben Hezekiah Ḥazkuni. The title-page describes it as a Torat ha-Adam and his statutes, concise but of great value, a kizzur kavvanot of the ARI of tephillot and tahanunim, for weekdays and Shabatot, mo’edim and regalim on precious matters. There is an introduction from R. Abraham ben Hezekiah, where he informs that he has entitled the book Zot Hukat ha-Torah for two reasons. First, that in this world a person should raise himself up and separate himself from the sin of Adam ha-rishon and secondly the simanim of the book alludes to ists essence, for example, the letter zayin alludes to the merit (zecut) of the soul, alef to eating (acelah), etc. The text is in two columns in rabbinic letters, beginning with zayin, zecut ha-nefesh.
R. Abraham ben Hezekiah Ḥazkuni was a Galician Talmudist and Kabbalist; born at Cracow in 1627; died at Tripoli, Syria. He was a disciple of R. Yom-Ṭob Lipman Heller, and the author, in addition to Zot Hukat ha-Torah, of the following works: Shete Yadot, sermons arranged in the order of the sections of the Pentateuch, published by the son of the author, Amsterdam, 1726; a commentary on the Zohar divided into two volumes, Yad Ramah and Yad Adonai, still extant in manuscript (Neubauer, "Cat. Bodl. Hebr. MSS." Nos. 1729b, 1853); "Zera' Abraham," in two volumes, the first containing sermons, the second novellæ on Beẓah and Mo'ed Ḳaṭan, quoted in the first-named work; Yodea' Binah, cited by the son of the author in his preface to the Shete Yadot.
