Detail Description

Two independent works, both published in the same year and in the same city. The first title is Ge’on Ya’akov, comprehensive novellae on tractate Eruvin by R. Jacob ben Abraham Kahana, the second Yashresh Ya’akov, hiddushei halakhot and aggadot on tractate Yevamot by R. Solomon ben Jacob Drimmer of Skola. Ge’on Ya’akov has approbations from R. Joseph Saul ha-Levi Nathansohn and R. Bezalel ben Israel of Vilna, followed by an introduction from R. Raphael Nathan Nata Rabbinovicz who published thework. The text is a detailed and comprehensive work on tractate Eruvin.

R. Jacob ben Abraham Kahana (d. 1826) was a rabbinical scholar in Vilna. His father was rabbi at Brestowitz in the province of Grodno. Supported by his father-in-law, R. Issachar Baer, the brother of R. Elijah of Vilna and one of the prominent rabbis of that town, he devoted himself to study. On the death of his father-in-law, he was appointed by the communal leaders of Vilna as trustee of the local charities. He is the author of a commentary in three parts on tractate Eruvin: on the tractate in the Babylonian Talmud, the Tosefta, and the Jerusalem Talmud respectively. Each section has a different title but the whole work was given the general title Ge'on Ya'akov. R. Kahana occupied no rabbinical position, but was held in the highest esteem.

The second work is Yashresh Ya’akov by R. Solomon ben Jacob Drimmer of Skola (1800-72). There is an introduction from the author immediately followed by the text. Yashresh Ya’akov is a thorough and in-depth work on Yevamot.
