Description
   Ethical work by R. Isaac ben Solomon Farhi (1782-1853) dayyan in Jerusalem, belonged to the distinguished family of financiers in Damascus during the 18th and 19th centuries, who held the position of sarraf (banker) in the province of Damascus during the 1740s and possibly even earlier. R. Farsi was born in Safed. The Jerusalem rabbinate sent him to Europe to raise funds for the poor; it was while he was an emissary that he printed many of his books in Livorno. In addition to Matok la-Nefesh and Matok mi-Devash, R. Farhi was also the author of Tuv Yerushalayim (Jerusalem, 1842), Zekhut ha-Rabbim (Constantinople, 1829), Imrei Binah (Bilagrado, 1837), Zekhut u-Mishor (Smyrna, 1850), Zuf Devash (Livorno, 1849), Shevet Mishor (Belgrade, 1837), Marpe la-Ezem (Constantinople, 1830), Musar Haskel (Constantinople, 1830), and Minei Metikah (Livorno, 1848).
