‘Pithchei Teshuvah.’ Digest of Hundreds of Responsa in Laws of Treifoth.

Composite manuscript in Hebrew composed in several hands.
pp. 68. Occasional wear. Modern boards. 4to.

Eastern Europe: c. 1850

A deeply learned digest of hundreds of rabbinic responsa on Yoreh Deah, chiefly those issued in the mid-19th century. Apparently intended for personal review, as the last few leaves contain write-ups of Halachic scenarios punctuated by the author’s encouragement to himself - ‘Commit to memory!’.

An anonymous labor of love recording material that would likely have taken years to learn through thoroughly. Includes material from the following (and more):

* Tuv Taam Veda’as (Lemberg, 1900). * Shoel U’Meishiv (Multi-volume, Lemberg, 1890). * Beis Avraham (Koenigsberg, 1853). * Ma’amar Mordechai (Lemberg, 1852). * Chassam Sofer. * Tiferes Zvi (Josefow, 1867). * Beis Ya’akov. * Pri Tevu’ah (Nowydwor, 1796). * Shefa Yehoshua. * Beis Shlomo (Lemberg, 1892). * Mayim Chaim (Zhitomir, 1858). * Ba’i Chai. * To’efos Re’em (Zolkiew, 1855). * Mekom Shmuel (Altona, 1738). * Chesed L’Avraham (Lemberg, 1898).
