   On the immanence of the coming of the Messiah, with the implication that the author is himself the Messiah by Moosa ben El-Hai. The title page states that it was brought to press by Dr. R. Moses ben Elijah Hagi Jacob called Moosa (Moses) ben El-Hai, that is, the author and published at the time of the dedication of the house (Psalms 30:1), which began but it shall come to pass, that at evening time there shall be light (Zechariah 14:7) which is the year Happy is he who waits, and reaches (Daniel 12:12) and was completed in the year until the decreed destruction is poured out on the desolator (Daniel 9:27), which is the year Zion shall be redeemed with judgment (Isaiah 1:27). The text is divided into shaarim, and has a lengthy Englishe introduction. As an example of Or le-Et Erev Moosa ben El-Hai writes, in the English introduction (p. 19), When tht writer saw the anxiety of his people, concerning the restraint of the rans, he appeared on the evening of the fast of Esther in the presence of the Sephardi Rabbis, headed by the Chief one and declared and promised that the Lord had filled his hand, and authorized him to bring such a quantity of rain that the streets of Jerusalem would be like rivers . . .
