More About this Item


Description: Ohel David on Tractate Yevamot. By Rabbi David son of Rabbi Mendel Deutsch. Vienna, 1825. First edition. 18 long and short handwritten glosses. More than ten of the glosses are the author's own additions to his writings. Most glosses are in charming scribal Rashi script. Two additions (page 18/2, page 20/1) and a correction of a word (page 5/1) are written in the author's own Ashkenazi handwriting. R. David Deutsch, Rabbi of Ir Chadash (1757-1831, Ishim B'Teshuvot Chatam Sofer, p. 113), author of Ohel David. Renowned Torah scholar, disciple of the Nodah B'Yehuda in Prague and of the Maharam Barabi in Pressburg. He served as Rabbi of Jamnitz, Frauenkirchen and Dunajsk? Streda. From 1810 until his death, he served as Rabbi of Nowe Miasto. Some of his Talmudic novellae were printed in his Ohel David books. He exchanged a prolific halachic correspondence with the leading Torah figures of his times, such as the Nodah B'Yehuda, the Chatam Sofer and the author of Yismach Moshe. The Chatam Sofer wrote an approbation on his book: "That tsaddik, holy Jew, genius… I have seen in it (the book) wonderful things…We are privileged to merit his words and his light…his merit should protect us from all harm". Many ownership stamps of R. David Ish-Shalom Friedman "David son of the Maharik ish Shalom - Av Beit Din of Zelem". R. David Friedman Ish Shalom (1851-1906), served as Rabbi of the Deutschkreutz (Zelem) community in Hungary, from 1891-1906. Son of R. Yisrael Kort Rabbi of Vrbov?, and son-in-law of R. Menachem Katz Prostitz Rabbi of Deutschkreutz (Zelem). The verso of the title page is inscribed and signed by "Zvi Hirsh Bishetz", who gave the book as a bar-mitzvah gift to "Shmuel Meir" in 1867. Next to the signature of Zvi Hirsh Bishetz is an inscription in another handwriting: "His name and memory shall be erased from under the heavens..." - [According to the harsh curses, we can surmise that "Zvi Hirsh" converted to a different religion or had gone astray]. On the leaf before the title page are ownership inscriptions from 1835 of Rabbi "Yosef Shmuel Hershler - son of R. Y. Z." [son of R. Yonah Ze'ev Hershler of Jerusalem, descendant of R. Yosef Shmuel Hershler Rabbi of Subate, who immigrated to Jerusalem in 1861 and died in 1894). [1], 22 leaves. Approximately 24 cm. Greenish-white paper. Good condition. Wear and stains. Some cutoff glosses. Old, torn and detached binding. Enclosed is expert's report about the content of the glosses, identifying the handwriting of Rabbi David Deutsch.
