   Hasidic discourses in two parts on the Torah and other subjects by the renowned Admor R. Ezekiel ben Moses Panet (1870-1929). The author was was known as an illui and for his great mental acuity. At the age of six he was already writing novellae on the Torah and at seven he was putting on tefillin. He was a great-grandson of R. Ezekiel ben Joseph Panet (1783–1845), grandson of R. Menahem Mendel of Des (1818-85), and the second son of R. Moses Panet of Des (1843-1902). R. Ezekiel was close to R. Ezekiel of Sianiawa. He married Hayyah Sarah, the daughter of R. Samuel Judah Pollack. R. Ezekiel Panet served, from 1895, as rabbi of Marousujvar, and, after the death of his father, as rabbi of Des, where he was accepted as admor by many thousands of hassidim. Knesset Yeheskel on the Torah in two parts (Des, 1931).

The title page is followed on the verso by the disclaimer that references to terms such as akum or A. Z. refer to earlier peoples, not to current gentiles for whose well being we pray and a warning against unauthorized reprinting of the book. There is an introduction from R. Jacob Elimelekh Panet and then the text, in two columns in rabbinic type. The first part of the book, which is on the Torah and includes discourses on the festivals concludes on 91b. The second part is discourses, primarily on festivals, with a lenghty discourse on the Song of Songs. On 167a-b there is a discourse from found in manuscript from R. Moses Panet, the author’s father. The volume concludes with a list of the names of subscribers who made publication possible.
