Cover signature: “Eliezer Papo.” Rabbi Eliezer Papo was the Peleh Yoetz (included with this is a certification from an expert). Above the signature: “Shai Binyamin Pinto.” And on the other side: “Eliyahu HaKohen.” Throughout the book are notes and remarks in a nice Sefardi handwriting, one of which is very long and opens with “Shimon Pesach said” [referencing a rabbi from Bulgaria], and it appears most of the notes are his, all of which is certified by an expert. Rabbi Eliezer Yehezkel Papo of Sarajevo (1785-1828) was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia; his father was Rabbi Yehuda, and Rabbi Eliezer was a rabbi in Sarajevo, and in Silistra, Bulgaria, from 1820. He is known mainly for his work “Peleh Yoetz”, a work accepted and widely beloved. He wrote additional works like Orot Eilim, with conduct according to the Shas, Zohar, and HaHida; Shut Peleh Yoetz, Beit Tefila, and more. Before his death, he said that anyone who prostrates himself at his grave after tevilah and saying tehillim, his prayer with kavanah would lead to redemption and mercy.
