Description Information
   Broadside folio 455:310 mm., creased, small loss. Unrecorded - not in CD-EPI.
   Polemic arguing against those who violate rules of modesty. The subtitle states that I am ready and prepared to fulfill the mitzvah of answer a fool according to his folly (Proverbs 26:5). The text is in three columns in fine square print, excepting vocalized verse in the middle column. The anonymous author states that in this time of segulah one should be occupied in holy and awesome rectification (tikkun). One of the pillars of the Torah and reverence is strengthening purity and modesty, as has been taught by our gedolim, specifically mention the Ari Zl and for all who go in his path, and their heads reach the heavens, in the books of the Talmud, the holy Zohar, etc. Particularly in the lands of the east, where young people mature prematurely, and due to our many iniquities many stumbling blocks are hidden from them, both natural and unnatural, which corrupt their ways. He therefore has taken it upon himself to demand rectification to the insult to the Torah from those who profane it. The broadside continues in this vein in great detail.
