<<AN UNPUBLISHED COMMENTARY>> by R. Ya’akov Koppel Lifschitz on the work “Kethivath Stam,” (the writing of Torah, Tefilin and Mezuzah) by R. Moshe Zacut. R. Ya’akov Koppel Lifschitz composed the important Siddur Kol Ya’akov, whose kabbalistic commentary received an approbation by R. Asher Tzvi of Ostrog stating that the saintly Ba’al Shem Tov saw the manuscript of the work and it “found favor in his eyes.” R. Ya’akv Koppel also authored the kabbalistic work entitled “Sha’ar Gan Eden.”
