Detail Description

Responsa by R. Yitshak Yehudah Schmelkes (1828–1906), a talmudic scholar of Galicia, was born in Lemberg (Lvov, Ukraine), the son of R. Ḥayyim Samuel Schmelkes, claiming descent from R. Eleazar b. Samuel Schmelke Rokeaḥ. He was the head of the rabbinical court in Lvov from 1869-1893. His Beit Yiẓḥak (6 vols., 1875–1908), on the four parts of the Shulḥan Arukh, was widely acclaimed. His opinion on halakhic questions was sought by many prominent contemporary scholars. A pupil of R. Joseph Saul ha-Levi Nathanson, head of the local bet din, R. Schmelkes was hailed in his youth as a brilliant talmudic student. He served as head of the bet din in a number of towns before being appointed in Lemberg, where he remained until his death.
