Novellae on the Aggadah by R. Ezekiel Ezra b. Joshua Halevi (1852–1942), one of the most prominent scholars and poets of Iraqi Jewry in recent generations; born in Baghdad and passed on in Jerusalem. In 1897 R. Halevi emigrated to Erez Israel and settled in Jerusalem. He earned his livelihood as a preacher; he was also a communal worker, president of the committee of the Iraqi community, and one of the founders of the yeshivah Shoshannim le-David. Of more than ten books which he wrote, five were published, including: Arugat ha-Bosem (1905), on the aggadah; Tehillah ve-Tiferet (1914), a commentary on the Book of Psalms; and also his Simhat Yom Tov (c. 1934), which was a commentary on the Passover Haggadah.
