Who Was The Zera Shimshon?
An 18th century talmid chacham and mekubal, Rav Shimshon Chaim ben Rav Nachman Michaeli was the rav of four large communities in Italy. When his only son died, Rav Shimshon declared that his sefarim would be his legacy, naming them Toldot Shimshon (The Generations of Shimshon) and Zera Shimshon (The Seed of Shimshon). The latter was published in 1778, one year before his death. In the introduction, Rav Shimshon asked people to learn his Torah and promised that anyone who did would be blessed with “children, praise, health, parnasa, wealth, honor.”
For many years, almost no one learned his works. They were very rare, difficult to read, and almost impossible to understand. However, in the last fifteen years, the profound Torah of the Zera Shimshon has finally spread throughout the world, bringing abundance and yeshuot to those yearning for children, a shidduch, parnasa, and healing.
“…the person who learns the commentary, will sit at his table surrounded by his children and family; beautiful blessings, all given wholeheartedly to the person who studies this work. A house filled with everything good…. The blessings will begin in this world and carry on in the world to come….. “ from the author’s Introduction to Zera Shimshon
