"I wrote this book for the salvation of the precious youth Elishama Berachiah Chaim Fuah to praise and thank G-d on the night of the Day of Judgement, and during shevarim and teruah (shofar blowing). And the the final one is most precious, for a siyum Torah."

Liturgical poems based on biblical language, and similar in rhythm and rhyme to hymns familiar from prayers. Includes the liturgical poem "אשת נעורים אומרה לאלו-היה" by Chananiah Elyakim Rietti, which is traditionally recited on the second day of Rosh HaShanah in Italy; a tune for shofar blowing starting with "מלך משפט אהב חפץ" marked with the acrostic 'משולם.'

[8] leaves. Ink on paper. 13x19 cm. Block Italian script by an artistic scribe. Beautiful vowelized letters.
