Detail Description

First edition of these important responsa on kiddushin, kittin, halitzah, agunot, and other related issues by R. Alexander Sander ben Zevi Hirsch Margaliot. The title page informs that R. Margaliot served as rabbi in Satanov and other locales. He was the uncle of the renowned R. Ephraim Zalman Margaliot and that this is the volume on Even ha-Ezer. The title page is followed by approbations from R. Dovberush Meisels, R. Isaac Meir Alter, R. Jehiel Michael Lristenfaller, and R. Isaiah Muscat and an introduction R. Margaliot’s grandsons, R. Alexander Sander and Samuel Zalman, who published Teshuvot ha-Ram. The volume is comprised of fifty-seven responsa and the text, set in two columns in rabbinic type, has a running header that states it is part III.

R. Alexander Sander ben Zevi Hirsch Margaliot (d. 1802) was a Polish rabbi. He succeeded his father, Zevi Hirsch, as rabbi of Zbaraz, Galicia, and was there in 1774. Later he became rabbi of Satanov, where he remained until his death. He is spoken of very highly by contemporary rabbis like R. Ezekiel Landau and R. Aryeh Löb of Stry (author of "Kezot ha-Ḥoshen"). He was the teacher of his nephew R. Ephraim Solomon Margolioth of Brody. The Margaliot (Margoliouth, Margulies, Margolies, and various other spellings) family, to which R. Alexander Sander Margaliot belonged, is a distinguished rabbinic family tracing its descent to Rashi. The name derives from margalit, Hebrew for "pearl." The earliest identifiable member of the family was R. Jacob of Regensburg. R. Jacob's son Samuel may be identical with Samuel Margaliot, nominated elder of Great Poland and Masovian Jewry in 1527 by Sigismund I.
