Commentary on halachot of kiddush hachodesh in the Rambam’s Mishneh Torah, and on Chapter 3 of halachot yesodei HaTorah. With astronomical illustrations. Illustrated cover of Moses and Aaron, David and Jonathan. By Rabbi Yehonatan bar Yosef of Razinay. Printed by Johann Kellner. | Rabbi Yehonatan of Razinay was a gadol of his generation, served in the rabbinate of Grodno. In 1710 a plague broke out in his city, and for a whole year he lived in a sukkah in a field outside the city with his whole family. He swore that if he survived the plague, he would write a book on the subject, and after he survived he wrote this book, whose name hints at what happened. To print the book he came to Frankfurt in 1720. In the introduction he writes that “hardships that have visited his city and state, a plague and the sword, and a few years have passed with things that have stopped him from fulfilling his vow.” | Margins cut off.
