   Only edition of these discourses on a variety of subjects by R. Aaron Azriel (1819-79). This volume is part two, the preceding volume having been printed a decade earlier (1902). It is described as the work of the great zaddik, our father, our shepherd, etc. “a ruby, a topaz, and a beryl” (cf. Exodus 28:17, 39:10). He is described as the rav, the kabbalist, and several of R. Aaron’s other works, Kape Aharon (Jerusalem, 1873), Ozen Aharon (Jerusalem, 1885), are enumerated. This volume was brought to press by Rafael Azriel in the year “and the gathering together of the waters He called Seas” (Genesis 1:10). The verso of the title page has a photo of the current structure with the caption the place of the Temple. Next is a folio with a two column list of the individuals who helped finance publication, including several from Tunis. There are seventeen discourses covering such subjects as charity, the virtues of Erez Israel, marriage, milah, tefillin, and exile, each with a heading utilizing a term including water. The discourses are followed by likkutim on Torah and other books of the Bible and an index of the contents of volume one.
