More About this Item


Description: Notebook of Torah novellae by Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Auerbach. [Jerusalem, ca. 1940]. Novellae on the Rambam, Hilchot Trumot, Yerushalmi Ma'aser Sheni, and treatises of Tractate Kiddushin in the handwriting of R. Shlomo Zalman Auerbach. Over the years, corrections, variations, erasures and additions were added by him to the original novellae. On one page is a draft of a letter to R. Zelig Reuven Bengis (comments to his book LeFlagot Reuven, Part Six - Jerusalem 1940). The world-renowned R. Shlomo Zalman Auerbach (1910-1995) was head of the Kol Torah Yeshiva and a leading Posek. Born in Jerusalem to R. Chaim Yehuda Leib Auerbach, the head of the Sha'ar Hashamayim Yeshiva for kabbalists, he was a close disciple of R. Isser Zalman Meltzer who esteemed his greatly and quoted him in his book Even HaEzel. In 1935, at the age of 24, he published his first book, Me'orei Esh, on the subject of use of electricity on Shabbat. This book earned the approbations of the leading Torah scholars of his times, including an approbation by R. Chaim Ozer Grodzensky, another from his teacher R. Isser Zalman Meltzer and an approbation by Rabbi Kook. In his youth, he maintained contact with R. Zalman Reuven Bengis, who served as Chief Rabbi of the Eda Charedit of Jerusalem. In the draft of the letter which appears in the notebook, the elderly R. Bengis' regard for R. Shlomo Zalman is apparent. At that time, R. Shlomo Zalman was a young man, about 30 years old and R. Bengis requested that he express his opinion on the content of his book. R. Shlomo Zalman writes: "And now, I am fulfilling your pure wish and responding as you requested with several thoughts on the first topic in your honored book…". Eventually, R. Shlomo Zalman became one of the leading Poskim and a top authority in a number of halachic areas such as matters related to medicine and halacha. His pleasant traits and gentle sensitivity won him reverence in all circles of Orthodox Jewry, apparent at his funeral which was attended by 300,000 people. Notebook, with nearly 40 written pages. 22X16 cm. Very good condition. Original cover, detached from notebook.
