A series of Kabbalistic poems with commentary, all of whose themes relate to the First Nights of Passover, including instructions and laws pertaining to the Seder. The author was a scion of a branch of the Hasidei Provence who later settled in Bohemia, where he was appointed Rabbi and Rosh Yeshiva of Prague in 1584. The title of this rare book is tucked away at the bottom of the title-page in small rabbinic letters.
