Product Description

Original edition printed in Amsterdam 1699
Compiled by Rav Shmuel DeLugatch
            For the record-not every word of Rashi’s commentary on Nach  can be ascribed to him; the question remains then-what is Rashi and what is not?  The mystery has been solved at last with the discovery of this obscure anthology of ancient commentaries “The Agudath Shmuel,” compiled be Rav Shmuel DeLugatch and printed in Amsterdam in 1699.

At a later date he hoped to print the manuscripts in their entirety and in a separate volume. After his release form prison he first traveled extensively and he describes his experiences in a fascinating preface to his work. Rav Shmuel arranged the more than two thousand likutim in its corresponding Pasuk of Nach.
