commentary to the Bible and Pirkei Avot by R. Hayyim b.Joseph b. Shalom Korah. The Author (1824-1914), Yemenite scholar, preacher, and kabbalist, was born in Sana. Many of the Yemenite scholars were among the disciples of his bet ha-midrash. Queries in the fields of Torah and halakhah were addressed to him from all parts of Yemen. His sermons—a combination of Torah and halakhah, Midrash, and Kabbalah—enthralled the masses. He was deeply involved in mystical studies, and acts and miracles wrought by practical Kabbalah are attributed to him. His works are extant in manuscript, only his commentary on the Five Scrolls was published.
