Description
   Tikkun the first night of Shavu'ot and Hoshana Rabba. Tikkun for the seventh night of Sukkot and the first night of Shavu'ot became formalized under the influence of the Kabbalah during the period of R. Isaac Luria and the Shelah. The liturgy includes sections of the Zohar, Idra Rabba, Bible, Mishne, Psalms and other supplications. This edition follows the order set forth in the Shelah.

In 1847 the Shapira printing press was established by the three brothers Hanina Lipa, Aryeh Leib, and Joshua Heschel Shapira, sons of R. Samuel Abraham Abba Shapira, the printer in Slavuta. Until 1862 this was one of the only two Hebrew presses the Russian government permitted to operate in the whole of Russia, the other being in Vilna. This press had 18 hand presses and four additional large presses. In 1851 Aryeh Leib broke away and established his own printing press in Zhitomir. In these two establishments only sacred books of every kind were printed.
