Description Information
   Broadsheet, 620:460 mm., creased on folds. Not in CD-EPI.
   Strongly worded detailed broadsheet bemoaning and attacking non-Torah activities and influences. It begins from within and from without we are beset with troubles. From within, how? It responds the younger generation has gone from us, it has a spirit of abandon and promiscuity and behaves shamelessly with our holy Torah. From without, how? Throughout the thousands of years of our exile there was not a terrible time such as this, a time in which hate has conquered all of our people, wherever they reside. This terrible situation requires us to make an accounting of our souls, to bring the end of our exile, to make efforts to increase knowledge within Israel, for the cause of all our afflictions can be attributed to our lack of effort in learning the wisdom of Kabbalah. The text is lengthy, set in several fonts, but refers to the teachings of R. Shimon bar Yohai and R. Isaac Luria (ha-Ari).
