Description
   Tikkun the first night of Shavu'ot. Tikkun for the seventh night of Sukkot ant the first night of Shavu'ot became formalized under the influence of the Kabbalah during the period of R. Isaac Luria and the Shelah. The liturgy includes sections of the Zohar, Idra Rabba, Bible, Mishne, Psalms and other supplications.

For hundreds of years the Yemenite Jewish communities followed their traditional ways of secular and religious life, not being influenced by external trends and currents. Some customs in the Yemenite prayer rites go back to the prayer book of R. Saadiah Ga'on. From the 16th century on the Kabbalah and especially later its Lurianic school and system found its way to Yemen and influenced Jewish literary production in the areas of commentaries to the Bible, prayers, and liturgic poetry. All of this rich history is reflected in this work.
