Shevet Mussar: Our Wisdom Print E-mail

writingsThe 24th of Adar is the Yahrtzeit of Rav Eliyahu (ben Shlomo) HaKohen Ha'Itamari of Izmir , author of Shevet Mussar (according to some - 22 Adar) (c1650-1729). According to family tradition, he is descended from Itamar ben Aharon HaKohen. In his book, Ve'lo Od Ela, Rav Eliyahu describes the earthquake that shook Izmir , on a Shabbos in 1688, and the many miracles that occurred to the Jews of the city. All of the synagogues and batei medrash in the city remained intact, while all of the Moslem mosques collapsed. An hour after the earthquake, a huge fire burst forth and spread throughout the city, destroying what remained of it. However, the fire ceased at the Jewish Quarter, and did not penetrate it. His other works included Me'il Tzeddakah on the importance of giving tzeddakah, Medrash Talpiyot, Yado BaKol, Medrash Eliyahu, Aggadas Eliyahu, a two-volume commentary on the aggados of the Talmud Yerushalmi, Chut shel Chessed on the Chumash, Dana Peshara, on Shir HaShirim, Rus and Esther,almost 40 sefarim in all.
Shevet Mussar, Chapter 32, paragraph 9:
Every nation and race believes that
 nobody equals them in wisdom or greatness.
