Manuscript in Hebrew written in a fine calligraphic hand ON VELLUM by the scribe Reuven, son of Rabbi Aryeh Leib Darshan of Waltsch. Title page in red and black ink.
pp. 8. Recent marbled boards. Sm. 4to.


(Poland): 1778

The title page of this manuscript states that it was utilized by the members of the Burial Society who would gather on the eve of the 1st of Kislev to fast and recite Selichoth. Afterwards they would assemble in the cemetery and ask forgiveness from the departed souls.


The scribe states he copied the penitential prayer here, an alphabetical acrostic entitled “Ana Elo-hei HaShamayim Ha’E-l HaGadol (composed by R. Tevele ben Yechezkel) from a manuscript Siddur that belonged to his father “the significant rabbi, great light, Hassid, and martyr Rabbi Aryeh Leib Darshan.”


Rabbi Aryeh Leib Darshan was one of the accused in a blood libel in Posen in 1736. The dreadful details of his arrest and execution appear in the introduction of R. Shmuel ben Azriel's Sepher Amudei Olam (Berlin, 1741).


This Selicha text later appeared in print in: Seder Chevra Kadisha U’Vikur Cholim DeKehal Kodesh Posen (Krotoszyn, 1858).
