    More Information:

    Immanuel Chai Ricchi (1688-1743) was one of the greatest Italian rabbis of his day. Besides charting the Lurianic universe, Ricchi's Mishnath Chasidim provides the kavannoth of the Ar'i for the prayers of the entire year. The work remained the fundamental authority for generations of kabbalists -- mystics of both the Mithnagic and Chassidic schools viewed this neat summary of Lurianic kabbal;ah as the last word.

    Lately, several researchers claimed to have found evidence of Sabbatian influence in Ricchi's works. [See: Roland Goetschel, 'Le problme de la kawwanahdans le 'Yosher Lebab' de Emmanuel Hay Ricchi (1737) in Priere, Mystique et Judaisme, Paris: 1987.] Actually, such suspicions were already suggested by Jacob Emden in Noar's Post-Sabbatian Sabbatianism, 1999.

    The book is prefaced by the text of the Semicha, or rabbinic ordination, granted to the author by Rabbi Hillel Asckenazi of Hania, Crete. Vinograd, Amsterdam 1526. Mehlman 619.
