Detail Description

First edition of the renowned Eliyyah Rabbah on six tractates by R. Elijah Ben Benjamin Wolf Shapira. The tractates are Ketubbot, Kiddushin, Gittin, Bava Kamma, Bava Batra, and Hullin. There are also likkutim on Niddah. The title page has an attractive head-piece of two cherubim and on the following pages are two tail-pieces, one of a mirror image monogram of the printer’s initials. There are approbations from R. Benjamin wolf, R. Judah Leib Farnbach, R. Joseph Haas, R. Judah Leib of Friedborg, and R. Hayyim Hirsch ben Meir Berlin; R. Ezekiel Segal Landau; R. Nathaniel Ashkenazi Weil; and R. Isaac ben Zevi Hirsch Kahana Rappaport, followed by R. R. Elijah’s introduction and then the text.

R. Elijah ben Benjamin Wolf Shapira (1660–1712), rabbi, preacher, and halakhist. Elijah studied under his grandfather, Aaron Simeon Shapira, and Abraham Abele Gombiner . He was the brother-in-law of R. Jacob Reischer and of R. David Oppenheim . He served as rabbi in Kolin, Bohemia, and from 1702 in Tiktin, resigning this post when he was appointed head of the yeshiva and preacher in his native Prague (though according to some he continued to act as rabbi of Tiktin while in Prague). R. Elijah gained renown through his works: Eliyahu Zuta, a short commentary on the Levush of R. Mordecai b. Abraham Jaffe , published with the text (Prague, 1689); Eliyahu Rabbah, a more extensive and profound commentary to the same work, published with the Shulhan Arukh, Oraḥ Ḥayyim (Sulzbach, 1757), to which it served as a kind of supplement; Shishah Shitot me-Hiddushei Eliyyah Rabbah on the tractates Ketubbot, Kiddushin, Gittin, Bava Kamma. Bava Batra, and Hullin, published in Zurich in 1768. Many of his other works – sermons, novellae, and responsa which had remained in manuscript – were destroyed in the great fire of Prague in 1754. Shapira died in Prague; his sons were Aryeh Leib, rabbi of Leipen, and Samuel, head of the Prague bet din.
