   Alphabetical summary and index to the halakhot in the Torat ha-Hattat of R. Moses ben Israel Isserles (Rema, c. 1530-1572) by R. Aaron ben Eliezer Lipman of Zempelburg (mid-seventeenth century). R. Lipman was Av Bet Din of Zempelburg. The title page has an architectural frame topped by the Benveniste ensign and is dated Thus (407=1647) shall Aaron come into the holy place (Leviticus 16:3).There are approbations from R. [Shabbetai] Sheftel Segal [Horowitz] of Posen, R. Abraham de Fonseca of Hamburg, R. David ha-Kohen of Emden, and at the end of the volume (68b-72b) from the three Sephardic rabbis of Amsterdam, R. Saul Levi Morteira, R. David ben Joseph Pardo, and R. Manasseh Ben Israel. There is an introduction from Lipman, followed by the text, which is in a single column in square letters. Lipmans purpose in writing Korban Aharon, expressed in the introduction, is to open the eyes of the blind (Isaiah 35:5) and improve access to the Remas Torat ha-Hattat which is on the laws of Issur ve-Hetter according to Shaarei Dura (R. Isaac ben Meir of Dueren, late thirteenth century, with additions according to the customs of Polish and German Jewry and adding contemporary customs. Lipman writes that nothing in Torat ha-Hattat has been omitted from Korban Aharon. The text is organized alphabetically by subject, and within subjects is enumerated by paragraphs. There is a colophon in which Lipman states that he wrote and completed this work on, Sunday, the first day of Purim, they cast Pur, [that is, the lot] (14 Adar [5]401 = February 24, 1641) (Esther 3:7), with the help of the L-rd, He gives power to the faint; and to those who have no might (Isaiah 40:29) shall grow stronger (Job 17:9) and increase. It is followed by the name of the compositor, Judah Leib ben Mordecai Gimpel of Posen. The volume concludes with a versified prayer by Lipmans father, in which the initial words of each line form an acronym of his fathers name, Eliezer ben Aaron.
