Rabbi Naftali Zvi Horowitz of Rafshitz(1760-1827) was born in Lyszek on the day of the death of the Baal Shem Tov (Shavuot 1760). This was noted by his disciple Rabbi Chaim of Sanz, author of Divrei Chaim: "And the sun came and the sun rose ... until it did not sink, etc."). His father was Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Linsk and his mother, daughter of Rabbi Itzikl Hamburger, where his grandson Rabbi Naftali Zvi learned his Torah, among the greatest disciples of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk, the Choshen of Lublin, the Maggid of Kozhnitz and Rabbi Menachem Mendel of Riminov. In RofshitzLeshem, a stream of Hassidim who received Rabbi Naftali became their rabbi. The courtyard quickly became one of the largest in Galicia, with numerous Hassidim among them including great Tzaddikim. His holy path was hidden and his words and conversations were in riddles and melodies. Only his great students could understand his point. In this book, too, ZeraKodesh wrote many profound matters with allusions and gematria in which he laid many secrets. The book was first printed about 40 years after his death after his students feared his warnings not to bring them to the printing press. This holy book was inscribed in the handwriting until the Hasidim gathered their courage, led by Rabbi Chaim of Sanz, to publish them, with the consent of the author of the Divrei Chaim: And what he received from his rabbi, the Ari, and did not allow his students to write them. Nevertheless, the Tzaddikim of the generation did some tricks and admiration for their copy. "Since then, the book has taken its important place among the Ahavim who enjoy it.
