Toras HaNazir First Edition. Kovno 1932. Fine copy.
Novella on tractate Nazir, authored by R. Yitzchok Hutner. A classic of Torah scholarship, R. Hutner authored this work as young man, to great acclaim.
With enthusiastic approbations of R. Chaim Ozer Grodensky, R. A.Y. Kook and R. Avrohom Duber Kahana-Schapiro (Dvar Avrohom). In later editions, the approbations from R. Kook and the D’var Avrohom do not appear. Additionally, on the final page there appears a short note which makes reference to a second volume to be published, which also does not appear in later editions.
R. Yitzchak Hutner (1906-1980), was a great original thinker and one of the most prominent American Roshei Yeshiva of the 20th century. Born in Warsaw, he learned first in Slabodka and later in Chevron. He immigrated to America in 1935, eventually becoming the Rosh Yeshiva of Yeshivas Rabbeinu Chaim Berlin. In this capacity he educated generations of talmidim and wielded a great influence on Orthodox Jewry worldwide.
Yoslovitz press. [1], 137 pages. 29.5 cm. Excellent condition. Does not include original wraps. Modern binding.
