Ma'agal Tov - The Good Journey

73227HardThis item is currently unavailable.
Rabbi Ha'im Yosef David Azulai was born in Jerusalem in 1724 and began his studies there in the Yeshiva of Rabbi Ha'im ibn Attar. Before the age of 30 he was already recognized as one of the leading Torah scholars in the world. He was appointed Rav of Cairo in 1764, a post he held for some 5 years. He lived in Hebron and wrote 100 works. He possessed an instatiable intellect encompassing science, history and 7 languages.

In 1753 he made his first great journey to Europe returning in 1757, to teach Torah to the out flung congregations of the Diaspora and collect funds for the yeshivas in the Holy Land. His second journey was begun in 1772, during which his beloved wife died.

The diary is replete with humor, pathos and adventure including capture by pirates, a full scale war and a meeting with King Louis XVI of France. This is a highly readable translation which remains faithful to the original. The footnotes contain a wealth of interesting detail.
