400 pages
Cherub Press
Following a long career of intensive writing, R. Eleazar of Worms assembled the majority of his interpretations of the lipograms in scripture into a collection called Sefer Ha-Ne'elam. This long and detailed exposition presents a concentrated collection of homilies containing various cases of lipograms throughout scripture. As with other similarly conceptualized collections of that period dedicated to different hermeneutical techniques, Sefer Ha-Ne'elam is a systematic work that attempts to organize various writings by their interpretive methods. R. Eleazar's systematic compilation of his hermeneutical writing in Sefer Ha-Ne'elam is a unique, innovative, and comprehensive interpretive approach.
