A Manuscript of a Transcript of the Book Otzrot Chaim, with Never-Printed Glosses by the Kabbalists Rabbi Avraham Azulai and Rabbi Avraham Ibn Mussa – Morocco – Tunisia –1740's
A manuscript of a transcript of the book Otzarot Chaim, the teachings of the Ari from Rabbi Chaim Vital, with never-printed glosses by the Kabbalists: Rabbi Avraham Ibn Mussa in the name of his rabbi Rabbi Yaacov Maragi, and Rabbi Avraham Azulai. Morocco, circa 1740's. The book Otzarot Chaim was edited by Rabbi Yaacov Tzemach and it contains the sederha'atzilut as Rabbi Chaim Vital heard from his rabbi the Ari. As the book does not contain the full sederha'atzilut–the Kabbalists in Morocco re-edited it and integrated several she'arim from the book MevoShe'arim into it. In the pages of the manuscript before us are glosses of the foremost Kabbalists in Morocco in the 1740's, Rabbi Avraham Azulai (died in 1741) – who was one of the teachers of Rabbi Shalom Buzaglo author of MikdashMelech on the Zohar and Rabbi Avraham Ibn Mussa(died in 1743)–a disciple of Rabbi Yaacov Maragi. Their glosses are signed with the initials A.A. [Avraham Azulai] and "Ab"m" [Avraham Ben Mussa]. The Chida relates about Rabbi Avraham Ibn Mussa (in the book Shem Hagedolim) that he had arguments about Kabbalah with the Rabbi Avraham Azulai…as can be seen in their glosses to the book Otzrot Chaim". From this it appears that the debate between the pair can be can be seen from their glosses. Some of their glosses were printed in the Livorno edition, but the printed glosses do not attest to any dispute between them. However, in Ginzei Meir Banyahu an entire booklet appearsin which the glosses of Rabbi Avraham Azulai and Rabbi Avraham Ibn Mussa were printed. These glosses were copied out separately, not on the pages of the book Otzrot Chaim, and contain glosses not printed in the Livorno edition, and indeed disputes and disagreements between the two sages appear in them (see: M. Benayahu, Rabbi Avraham Ibn MussaU'bno Rabbi Moshe: M'RosheiHamedabrimB'KabbalatHa'AriB'Tzfon Africa, sefer Michael H, Tel Aviv 1978, pages 22-24). Some of these glosses were printed prior to the1844 Livorno edition as a separate booklet within the book Makom Binah, Salonika 1813, but there too the glosses were not printed in full. In the manuscript before us the glosses of the aforementioned sagesappear in full, but here they are in their place on the pages of the book – each gloss in the place it refers to, and here too the arguments the Chida refers to appear. 282 pages, pleasant handwriting, 20 cm. Old slightly blemished leather binding, partially detached, detached leaves. Stains and water stains. Very slight worming holes. Overall condition: Good.

Shadrut letter from the rabbis of Hevron carried by the godly Rabbi Amram ben Divan, 1773. An important, historical letter
A Shadrut letter signed by the great rabbis of Hevron. Sent to the Gaon Rabbi Eliyahu HaTzarfati of Morocco, sent in the hands of Rabbi Amram ben Divan. In the letter they describe the difficult situation of the city and tell about the Jews who are in prison. As is known, in this delegation he met HaHida in Egypt, and after great worries he sailed for Morocco and died there next to Ouazzane on Tu B’Av 1782. On the letter are signatures from great rabbis of Hevron: Rabbi Aharon Alfandri, the Markevet HaMishnah and Yad Aharon (HaHida praises him a lot in his book). Rabbi Avraham Gedalya (signature erased). Rabbi Hayim Yehuda Gometz Pato, Rabbi Pinhas Mordechai Bagayo. Rabbi Hiya Zeevi. Rabbi Amram ben Divan is mentioned with fear and awe by the Jews of Morocco, he was born in Jerusalem in 1740 and became a student of the revealed and hidden Torah. He settled in Hevron, and in 1763 he was sent as a Shadar to Morocco with an appointment letter signed by Rav Yitzhak Zeev. After he travelled around Morocco and gathered the donations for Hevron, he returned to Israel. After a short time in Israel he left again for a second time in 1773. He stayed more than 8 years, most in Makanes by Rabbi Zecharya Masas. The reason for his stay was the tribal war taking place outside Makanes, though it seems possible his medical situation also prevented him from travelling, as a result of his deep asceticism. He left Fez and then Tangiers in 1782, but died on the way back to Israel and is buried in the cemetery of Asjan next to Lusan. His grave is a pilgrimage site in Morocco. Stories of his miracles abound. The paytan Rav David Hassin, who knew him personally for many years, composed a piyyut in his honor and called it HaHar HATov. This letter appeared in a book of shluchim by Avraham Ya’ari published by Mossad HaRav Kook in Jerusalem, 1951, p. 585. Attached is an official letter on letterhead by Rabbi Refael HaTzarfati, who inherited the letter. The letter underwent professional restoration. Damage to the text through the letter in the center. Generally ok to good condition. Attached is a certificate from Rav Shimon Schwartz, shlita.

Amulet on parchment given out by the Admor Rabbi Yeshay’le Kristerer – rare.
The amulet before us is written in the shape of one of the scribes of Rabbi Yeshay’le with slight changes: “Yelshatet” with an extra taf and missing the bet of the next word. The above amulet was found in a siddur of a Jew from the area and the time period when the Tzaddik was active.“The following things the author would write on a small parchment, and no evil would befallen him nor to any members of his household,” so wrote Rabbi Hillel Liechtenstein in his book “Tshuvot Beit Hillel HaChadash” (32). “Yelshat B’Asher Boliv v’haAph HaBamug v’la” (the words written on the parchment)—three verses for preservation are hinted at in it, appearing in the book Elef Katav, and this is the exegesis: “the verses are ‘Yehi Shalom B’Kheilech Shalva b’Armnotaich’ (Psalms 122:7); ‘Lo TeUna Elayech Ra’ah v’Negah Lo Yikrav B’Ohalayech’ (Psalms 91:10), linked by the first initials of the first line. The verse ‘Ve’et HaAnashim Asher Petach HaBayit Hiku BaSanverim MiKotan v’Ad Kadol Vayelu Limtzo HaPatach,” (Genesis 19:1), appears in the first initials of the second line.” For many generations, the deeds of the Tzaddik from Krestir, Rabbi Yeshaya Steiner, have reverberated, especially the story of the Jew who immigrated to the United States, who opened a laundromat for parnasa that he profited off. Two goyim opened a laundromat across the street from him to compete, and the Jew sent another Jew to Hungary with a request to go to Rabbi Yeshayla and ask him for deliverance from his difficulty. The Jew returned to the United States and brought with him an amulet similar to the one before us here. The competitors decided to burn the Jew’s store, and sent someone to light it on fire, but the person couldn’t identify the storefront and accidentally burned down the Italians’ store. When the Rabbi Yeshayla died, the Jew dared to open the amulet and was astonished in seeing the verse and people who entered the home were struck with blindness. Rabbi Yeshaya Steiner (1852-1925) from Krestir (Bodrogkeresztur) was one of the most important and well-known Admorim in Hungary. When he was 3, his father died, and at age 12 his widowed mother sent him to Rabbi Zvi Hirsch from Liska, where he was until his Rav died, and then he succeeded him, but remained indigent and did not think of himself. He is considered a miracle-worker and many amazing stories are told of him. Until today thousands of people continue to visit his grave and unburden their hearts there, and many amazing stories have been generated about the power of that event. He is known for his merciful heart and his care for the parnasa of the Jewish people. The amulets given during his lifetime to those seeking deliverance were written on parchment by professional scribes from his students, and he would himself bless them and give them by hand. His picture is most known as a segula against rats in a home, after an incident when he blessed a home and rats left the Jews’ bags of wheat, as well as another where he blessed a Jew who had been sued and rats came and ate the suit that was hanging before him in the court. Size: 4.9/1.3 cm. Excellent condition. An additional amulet from his holy hands was sold in Auction #12 (Item 270) and sold for $160000.
