We will quote a paragraph here about the importance of this print for Hasidim from the article by Avraham Yaari "The Hebrew print in Mahlov on the Dniester River" from Kiryat Sefer, Year 23: Printer R. Zvi was a smart student and precise, and he added a few books of commentary, including various manuscripts, or formulas according to exact books, so he added a great deal to Midrash, and many additions. Levi Yitzhak of Berdychov and Rabbi Avraham Yehoshua Heshil of Afta [Ohev Yisrael] while sitting in Ias and Ma'zibuz. Their endorsements appear in a number of books printed in Mahlov. The Rabbi of Aphtha also inspired the printer to print the "ma’amadot" and even handed him the "Seder Amirat HaKetoret" that he arranged, for printing at the end of the ma’amadot
