. Sefer Zechor L’Avraham, 3 sections—Zolkva 1868, copy owned by rabbis from the Babad family

Work on the four sections of the Shulchan Aruch by Rabbi Avraham ben Shmuel Elkalai. Volume contains all of the work’s three sections with a separate cover for each section. An important work organized alphabetically. Tears and light stains, tiny bit of moth damage, generally good condition.

Covers and the end have stamps of ownership of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Babad, and his son Rabbi Avraham Moshe Babad of Goro-Homora.

Rabbi Menachem Mendel Babad, rabbi of Gora-Homoroloy (Bukovina). A descendent of Rabbi Yosef Babad, the Minchas Chinuch, appointed over Chassidei Chortkov, known as a great talmid chacham who was in regular correspondence with greats of his generation. Died in 1930.

His son and successor, Rabbi Avraham Moshe Babad (1900-1980) was rabbi and chassidic rosh yeshiva in Bukovina and Israel, a student of the Gaon Rabbi Meir Arik of Tornov. He inherited his father’s position, and after WWII tried to immigrate to Israel but was sent to Cyprus in 1948 by the British, where he served as rabbi of the detention camp. After making it to Israel he was in constant contact with the Chazon Ish. Around 1952 he was appointed for a time as the Rosh Yeshiva of Yechel Yisrael of the Seret-Vizhnitz Chassidic community, led by his son-in-law Admor Rabbi Baruch Hager.
