   Call to repentance and action on behalf of Judaism by the Hafez Hayyim. R. Israel Meir Ha-Kohen (Hafez Hayyim, 1838–1933) is one of the most saintly figures in modern Judaism. Of humble origin, he was taught until the age of ten by his parents and then went to Vilna where he continued his studies. His surname Poupko is hardly known to even those who revere him; he is always referred to as Hafez Hayyim after the Sefer Hafez Hayyim, his first book. Hafez Hayyim’s personality, piety, humility of conduct, integrity of thought and action, together with his books, exercised a tremendous influence on religious leaders, and fascinated the general Jewish public, to whom he became a much beloved leader and moral guide. Hundreds of sayings full of practical wisdom are attributed to him, and hundreds of stories both factual and legendary, all rich in morals, are reported about his life.
Paragraph 2    ... לעורר לבבות שלומי אמוני ישראל... לחזק עצמנו... לעבודת מלכו של עולם... הכותב... ישראל מאיר הכהן...

מקום הדפוס ושמו של המדפיס באותיות קיריליות. נדפס בצד אחד של הדפים, בארבע עמודות. דברי תוכחה על הזנחה והתרשלות במצוות שונות: "אין אנו יוצאים ידי חובתנו במה שאנו נאנחים ונאנקים ... על חלול השם הגדול אשר נעשה ... בדור הזה ... אלא כל אחד ... מחויב לעשות כעת מה שבכוחו ... ".
