Detail Description

Scholarly works by R. Simeon Judah Szkop (1860–1940), Talmudical scholar and rosh yeshivah. At the age of 12, R. Szkop was accepted as a student at Mir Yeshivah, and later proceeded to Volozhin. He married a niece of R. Eliezer Gordon and in 1885 was appointed to the Telz Yeshivah, where he remained for 18 years. In 1903, he was appointed rabbi of Maltash, and in 1907 of Bransk. In 1920, at the request of R. Hayyim Ozer Grodzinski, he was appointed head of the Sha'arei Torah Yeshivah in Grodno. Shkop developed a system of talmudic study which combined the logical analysis and penetrating insights of R. Hayyim Soloveichik with the simplicity and clarity of R. Naphtali Zevi Judah Berlin and which became known as the "Telz way of learning." Many of his students attained distinction, among them R. Elhanan Wasserman, R. M. A. Amiel, and R. I. J. Unterman. Alive to the problems of the day, R. Shkop had a winning personality. He was an active member of the Mo'ezet Gedolei Torah of the Agudat Israel. Of his many works there have been published Sha'arei Yosher (2 vols., 1928); Ma'arekhet ha-Kinyanim (1936); novellae on Bava Kamma, Bava Meziah, and Bava Batra (1947; with a preface by his son), on Nedarim, Gittin, and Kiddushin (1952), and on Yevamot and Ketuvot (1957). As the Germans were about to enter Grodno during World War II, he ordered his students to flee to Vilna and he himself died two days later.
