ADANI, MIZRAḤI SHALOM (second half of 19th century), kabbalist and scholar. The appellation Mizraḥi was given to Adani because of his eastern Yemenite origin.

He wrote Sukkat Shalom ("Tabernacle of Peace," 1891), novellae on the tractate Bava Kamma, the introduction to which contains a description of his adventures on his way to Ereẓ Israel; and Shelom Yerushalayim ("The Peace of Jerusalem," 1899), novellae on the Eẓ Ḥayyim of R. Ḥayyim Vital\>\> , as well as some others on the kabbalistic writings of R. Shalom Sharabi\>\> .
