In this book, after his introduction the author’s son the Chakal Yitzchak of Spinka wrote: “As in my introduction I discussed studying the wisdom of the kabbalah and the story of creation, I will copy a letter from the Maharal of Prague here, as G-d brought about that I obtained a manuscript and it is wonderful letter and it must be printed and studied because it contains incredible wisdom.” Effectively, by bringing the fascinating letter of the Maharal of Prague he puts an end to the ancient debate about the existence of the golem from Prague. The letter, that was sent to Rabbi Yaakov Ginzburg, rabbi of Friedberg is almost four pages long. In the letter the Maharal discusses the golem he created, why he was permitted to create it, whether it will be brought back to life when the dead are resurrected, and everything about the golem and what caused him to create it.

The Rebbe Rabbi Yosef Meir Weiss of Spinka (1838-1909) known as the Imrei Yosef after this book, was the important and renowned disciple of Rabbi Yitzchak Isaac of Zidichov, from whom he learned his unique approach to kabbalah. He also learned from the great rabbis of the period, the Maharam Ash and Rabbi Shmuel Shmelke rabbi of Salish, before coming to his rabbi in Zidichov. When he was young he learned from the Sar Shalom of Belz and the Tzemach Tzadik of Vizhnitz. After his rabbi’s death in 1873, some of his rabbi’s disciples crowned him as a rebbe in the village of Spinka in Maramures. Most of the disciples of his rabbi from Zidichov followed him there, and they were joined by masses of Jews from Hungary and Galicia. Great rabbis such as the Maharsham of Brezan were among his students.
