   R. Zevi Hirsh b. Jerahmeel Chotsh (c. 1700), was a noted kabbalist and itinerant preacher who lived in Cracow, in Prossnitz, and in western Europe. He published: Shabtade-Rigla, a collection of kabbalistic sermons (Fuerth, 1693); Derekh Yesharah, kabbalistic prayers and magic (ibid., 1697). A part of the first work was translated into German in 1698, probably with the assistance of the author, as Verzeichnis der General-und Haupt-Lehrsaetze der alten Cabbalisten. The autograph manuscript of his kabbalistic work Tiferet Zevi is extant in a Bodleian manuscript at Oxford. R. Chotsh also revised a Yiddish translation made by his grandfather Aviezer Zelig of easier parts of the Zohar under the title Nahalat Zevi (Frankfort, 1711). In spite of its rather clumsy style, the book became very popular and was often reprinted.
