Drash for Shabbat Tshuva. Handwritten by the Rish Galuta d’Bavel, Rabbeinu Yosef Haim—the Ben Ish Hai.
7 pages, 14 columns of handwritten text by Rabbeinu Yosef Haim, the Ben Ish Hai. Around 18 lines per column, a drasha for Shabbat Tshuva with erasures and corrections that characterized his handwritten. Excellent condition, bound in new handsome binding, size 10x13cm. As is well-known, on four shabbats per year (Tshuva, Zachor, HaGadol, and Kala) the multitudes of Baghdadi Jewry would gather in the city’s Great Synagogue, where there were 10,000 seats (“Tzalat al-Kabiri”), and would listen to the drashot of the Ben Ish Hai.
