Sermons on the weekly Torah portions, by R. Shlomo Ephraim of Lunshytz.
R. Shlomo Ephraim (niftar 1619), was born in Lunshytz and studied under the Ma’HarShaL. He served as Rav in Yaroslov and later in Lvov. In 1604 he was invited to Prague to assist the famed MaHarAL and eventually succeeded him as Rav and Rosh Yeshiva. He was famous for his fiery Derashos which stirred the hearts of his listeners. He authored various important seforim, most notably his classic commentary on Chumash Klei Yokor, beloved by both scholars and laymen.
