Description: Miniature of a hunting scene illustrating a mnemonic, YaKeNHaZ, that is, yayin (wine), kiddush (blessing), ner (candle), havdalah (separation), and zman (time). The memonic aids to recall sequence of ritual acts at those occasions when the close of the shabbat coincides with the eve of a festival. The mnemonic, YaKeNHaZ sounds similar to the German jag den Haas meaning 'hunt the hare', thus, it was illustrated often with a hare-hunting scene.
In the outer margin, a miniature of a man seated looking at his fingernails. 
Origin: Germany, S. (Ulm?)
