Detail Description

Novellae on the works of R. Isaac Alfasi and R. Nissim b. Reuben Gerondi to Ketubbot, Hullin, and Bezah, and a few novellae on other tractates of the Talmud by R. Joseph b. Benjamin Samega (d. 1629), Italian rabbi and author. R. Samegah was born in Salonika where he later became rabbi. Compelled to leave, seemingly because of persecution by his community, he went to Venice, where he served as rabbi and head of a yeshiva. According to Isaac Hayyim Cantarini in his Pahad Yizhak, Samegah headed a yeshiva in Padua. Among his pupils were Hayyim Benveniste and Joseph Solomon Delmedigo. Joseph was the author of Mikra'ei Kodesh (2 pts., Venice 1586), on the meaning of the precepts of the Torah; Porat Yosef (pt. 1, Venice, 1590); Perush Derekh Yemin (ibid., 1606), a criticism of the Yemin Adonai Romemah of Menahem Azariah Da Fano. Joseph's responsum permitting the use of the mikveh of Rovigo, about the ritual fitness of which arose a great controversy involving many scholars, was published in the Mashbit Milhamot (ibid., 1606). In the introduction to Mikra'ei Kodesh he refers to two other works he wrote—"Binyan Olam," homilies, and "Kevod Elohim."

Hebrew Description    

 חלק א. והוא חדושי... ר' יוסף סאמיגה נר"ו על הריף והר"ן ממסכת כתובו' וקצת פרקי חולין. וקצת דבורי התוספות בתחלת כתובות. וחדושי... מסכת ביצה וקצת פרקי מסכ' זבחים. והרבה סוגיאות קשות משאר מסכתות (תענית, שבועות, יבמות). וקצת לשונות אחרים זרים...
בשולי העמ' האחרון: מה שחסרנו להדפיס חדושי זבחים ושארית חדושי מס' ביצה... נדפיס אותו בחלק האחר. החלק האחר על ביצה בלבד נדפס בתוך אסיפת זקנים על מסכת ביצה, מאת ר' בצלאל אשכנזי, מיץ תקכ"ד-תקכ"ה.
