Detailed Description:   

The study of Mishnah is widespread, whether as an act of piety by saintly individuals, or by groups of unlearned people. For this purpose "societies of mishnah" (Hevrot Mishnei'ot) were and continue to be formed in every observant community. The groups often dedicate the study in memory of a deceased one and recite Kaddish upon completion of the session.

In 1791 R. Moses Shapira, son of the zaddik R. Phinehas b. Abraham of Korets, founded the printing press Slavuta became known for. Later R. Moses' two sons, Samuel Abba and Phinehas, took over the administration of the press. Three editions of the Babylonian Talmud, an edition of the Bible (with commentaries), the Zohar, and many other religious works, especially hasidic literature, were all produced handsomely and with great care by the press. In 1835 the press was closed down when the owners were arrested for the alleged murder of a worker who had supposedly denounced them for printing books without permission from the censor.

 

Hebrew Description:

משניות : ... עם פירושי ... רבינו עובדיה מברטנורה ותוספות יום טוב ותוספות חדשים ... ועוד נתוסף ... חידושי ... בעל פרי חדש ... וגם איזה חידושים / מהרב ... מוהר"ר לוי יצחק ... אבדק"ק ברדיטשוב ...
