Manuscript of Ma’asey Rav handwritten after the passing of the Gaon. This manuscript includes 117 ‘Minhagei HaGra’, including Hilchos Birchas Ha’Shachar, Hilchos Tefilah, Hilchos Seudah, Hilchos Shabbos, Hilchos Yom Tov, Hilchos Pesach and Hilchos Sukkah. With many variations and important Chidushim to the published Ma’asey Rav (Vilna Horodna 1832).
The sefer Ma’asey Rav which encompasses the Minhagim of the Gaon, was originally prepared for publication by R. Saadiah and R. Yissochar Ber who were among the inner circle of the Gaon. Together with the Biur HaGra on Shulchon Oruch, it is an authentic source of Halocha according to the Gaon, and is quoted in the Mishna Berurah as practical Halocha. It was printed with the approbations of R. Chaim Volozhiner, R. Abele of Vilna and the Chayei Odom, all of whom stress the importance of its printing.
See Toras Ha’Gra by R. Dovid Kamenetzky page 179.
5 pages, 10 sides. 31 cm. Fine condition. Some wear on the margins. Modern binding.
Opening bid $3000
