His many works are anthologic in character, relying on R. Hayyim Vital’s Kabbalah. Nevertheless, R. Zemah’s contribution to the literary consolidation of Lurianic Kabbalah is important as are his citations of contemporary kabbalists, e.g., R. Joseph ibn Tabul. Zemah left many works, partly in manuscript. In the aforesaid introduction he gives details of his literary activities. His works include Zohar ha-Raki'a (Korzec, 1785), a commentary on sayings of Sifra di-Zeni'uta, and the Idra of the Zohar; Zer Zahav, an explanation of every item in the Orah Hayyim section of the Shulhan Arukh according to the Zohar and the Lurianic Kabbalah; Lehem min ha-Shamayim (Munkacs, 1905), a compilation of Lurianic customs of which the printed version differs from the manuscripts; Nagid u-Mezavveh (Amsterdam, 1712), an important anthology of Lurianic customs which served as the basis for Shulhan Arukh shel ha-Ari; Zemah Zaddik (Korzec, 1785), kabbalistic homilies.
