by Rabbi Chiyya Rofeh of Tzfas
Chiddushim on Shas, shailos and teshuvos by the venerable Rav Hamusmach of Tzfas, Rabbi Chiyya Rofeh.
This sefer boasts impressive wide margins.
Rav Hamusmach Rabbi Chiyya Rofeh (circa 1550-1617) studied Torah in the yeshivah of Rabbi Shlomo Sagish together with the Maharit. He then studied the wisdom of kabbalah under Rabbi Chaim Vital and was one of the select disciples to transmit his sacred teachings to the future generations, teaching Rabbi Binyamin Halevi who subsequently taught the Ramaz.
Rabbi Chiyya Rofeh was one of the prominent scholars ordained by Rabbi Yaakov Beirav along with his contemporary sages, Mahrit Tzahalon and author of Sefer Chareidim.
Maase Chiyya was printed by the author’s son Rabbi Meir Rofeh who served as a Rabbinical emissary for the Jewish settlement in Chevron. The sefer boasts approbations by Rabbi Eliezer ben Orcha, Rabbi of Chevron. The sefer begins with an approbation and poem by the Ramaz.
