Description
   A homiletic commentary on Deuteronomy.

R. Samuel Hagiz (died c. 1570) left Fez, his birthplace, about 1590, remained for some time in Tripoli, North Africa, then traveled to Venice where, in 1597, he published Mevakkesh ha-Shem, sermons on the Pentateuch, and Devar Shemu'el. He then emigrated to Erez Israel and settled in Jerusalem. His family is of Spanish origin which emigrated to Morocco after the expulsion decrees of 1492, and settled in Fez, where some of its representatives were at the head of the Castilian community of Megorashim ("the exiled").
