   Kabbalistic commentary on the Pentateuch by R. Abraham Hazkuni (b. 1627), rabbi and kabbalist, was born in Cracow, and was a disciple of R. Yom Tov Lipmann Heller. He published a summary of R. Isaac Luria's Sefer ha-Kavvanot under the title Zot Hukkat ha-Torah (Venice, 1659). His commentary on the Zohar, Shetei Yadot consisting of two parts, Yad Ramah and Yad Adonai, was lost through the negligence of the printer, with the exception of eight pages which are preserved in Oxford and New York (JTS). His son Jacob later published his father's commentary on the Pentateuch under this same title. R. Hazkuni also wrote Zera Avraham, a two-part work containing casuistic derashot on the Torah; Yode'a Binah, of unknown content; and novellae to the tractates Bezah and Mo'ed Katan. He passed on in Tripoli.
