Description: Sermons in the handwriting of R. Ya'akov Yisrael Algazi, Jerusalem, 1744. A pamphlet, handwritten by the author, R. Ya'akov Yisrael Algazi. Contains four sermons [the first short], with titles: "And you will return to G-d your L-d and heed ", "I have delivered this to a large audience in Jerusalem on Shabbat Nachamu 1744", "Sermon for Shabbat Nachamu", "Eulogy for the Rebbetzin widow of R. Binyamin Ma'ali HaCohen Rosh Chodesh Elul 1744", "P. Tavo for a woman of valor mazal tov 1744". These sermons have not been printed. Various similar versions are printed in his books: The sermon for Shabbat Nachamu from 1744 has been printed, in an entirely different version but containing several passages of similar content, in the book She'erit Ya'akov [Drush Parshat Va'etchanan]. Likewise, in the book Shema Ya'akov [Drush Parshat Re'eh], the eulogy has been printed but its content is different from the version in this manuscript [apparently this sermon was delivered at the erection of the tombstone]. The kabbalist Rabbi Yisrael Ya'akov Algazi (1680-1757, Otzar HaRabbanim 12226) was born in Izmir to Rabbi Yom Tov. He moved to Jerusalem before 1737 and was an eminent Dayan and teacher, one of the head of the kabbalist Beit El Yeshiva in the days of R. Gedalya Chayun and the Rashash. From 1755, he served as Rishon L'Zion and Rabbi of Jerusalem. He authored Shalmei Tzibur, Shema Ya'akov, Ar'a D'Rabbanan, etc. and published the book Chemdat Yamim signing the title page with "Tola'at Ya'akov son of R' Yom Tov Algazi". The Chida was his disciple as was R. Algazi's renowned son the Maharit Algazi. Pamphlet,  pages. 16 cm. Good condition. Stains.
