Description Information
   [2], 20, 260 ff., folio, 335:215 mm.,nice margins, usual light age and damp staining. A very good copy bound in modern cloth over boards.
   An extensive exposition of the Sifra with an introduction entitled Middot Aharon, explaining the 13 hermeneutical rules of R. Ishmael and their development and application. The work was held in high esteem by Ibn Hayyim's contemporaries and in subsequent generations, and in fact was largely responsible for the Sifra becoming a subject of study. In the main it aims at a literal exposition of the text and even when Ibn Hayyim indulges in casuistic interpretations, his regard for the plain meaning is apparent.

R. Aaron ibn Hayyim (1545–1632), rabbi and commentator. Ibn Hayyim was born in Fez and studied at the yeshivot of his father, of R. Vidal ha-Zarefati, and of R. Joseph Almosnino. He was appointed a member of the bet din of Vidal in Fez, but in 1606 left for Egypt. In 1609 he went to Venice to publish his book, Korban Aharon (1609), and remained there at least three years. From there he traveled to the countries of the Orient and finally settled in Jerusalem, where he died. Among those who eulogized him were R. Azariah Figo and R. Leone Modena. Ibn Hayyim's fame rests on his commentaries to the Sifra (this lot), Mekhilta and the Sifrei, to the Pentateuch, the Prophets, and the Song of Songs, but only his Lev Aharon on Joshua and Judges, giving both the literal meaning and aggadic exposition, has been published (Venice, 1609). Some of his responsa appear in the works of his contemporaries.
