A precious find! Two handwritten pages by Kabbalist Rabbi Shmuel Vital
Two pages in the holy handwriting of renowned Kabbalist Rabbi Shmuel Vital, the son and faithful student of his father, the glory of Israel, Rabbi Chaim Vital.
Sermon on Parashat Vayaira. A missing leaf from his wondrous book, Totzaot Chaim, which was acclaimed as his greatest work.
The great and holy Kabbalist Rabbi Shmuel Vital was the Av Beit Din in Damascus, one of his father’s greatest students, heir to his writings and their editor. He wrote down his father’s teachings and the Kabbala of the Ari. Rabbi Shmuel’s father admired him and respected him, and taught him all his wisdom, that he learned from the Ari. Rabbi Chaim Vital said of his son Shmuel the “his soul is an offshoot of the Ari’s soul.”
