Resource Toolbox

Cabalist lived at Kremnitz, Hungary, at the beginning of the seventeenth century. He seems to have traveled in the East and sojourned some time at Safed and he frequently refers in his writings to the cabalistic school established in that place. Baer is the author of the following works: (1) "Pitḥ e Yah" (The Gates of God)— divided into ten chapters, containing an introduction to the Cabala, on the basis of Cordovero's "Pardes Rimonim," Prague, 1609 (2) "Yesh Sakar" (There Is Reward), containing all the ritual laws found in the Zohar, Prague, 1609 (3) "Meḳ or Ḥ okmah" (Source of Wisdom)— explanations of the difficult words and expressions of the Zohar, with an appendix containing all the legends found in the Zohar, Prague, 1610 (4) "Yod' e Binah" (They Who Have Understanding), a large work on the Zohar that does not seem to have been printed.
