Detail Description

Only edition of this two part collection of responsa, and novellae on the Talmud, together with a commentary on Rashi and R. Elijah Mizraḥi by  R. Isaac ben Isaiah Attia. The text of the title-page begins ‘and running water shall be put thereon’ (Numbers 19:17) ‘She is a tree of life to those who lay hold on her” (Proverbs 3:18). There is an introduction from R. Attia in which he informs that Tanna ve-Shiyyur are shi’urim that he gave almost thirty years ago and that he has since edited; Penei ha-Mayim, for there is no water but Torah and these are his related discourses.

R. Isaac ben Isaiah Attia (18–19 century) was rabbi and dayyan and taught in the yeshivah in Aleppo. R. Attia's wife and children perished in the plague of 1787. He was in halakhic communication with the scholars of Aleppo and also in 1790 with R. Ḥayyim Joseph David Azulai (Hida). In c. 1814 he set out on a journey which lasted more than seven years. R. Attia traveled from Syria to Ereẓ Israel and then to Egypt, France, and Italy, staying in Leghorn for at least five years. There he published, in addition to Tanna ve-Shiyyer; Penei ha-Mayim many of his other books. Among his works are (1) Zera Yiẓḥak (Leghorn, 1793), sermons on Genesis. The book also included Yekara de-Ḥayyei, eulogies, as well as Pilpelet Kol she-Hu, on the tractate Sukkah; (2) Rov Dagan (Leghorn, 1818), on the Babylonian Talmud together with Ot le-Tovah, responsa and halakhic novellae in alphabetical order; (3) Eshet Ḥayil (Leghorn, 1821), on the last chapter of Proverbs; (4) Zekhut Avot (Leghorn, 1821), on Avot; (5) Mesharet Moshe (Leghorn, 1821), on Maimonides' Yad, to which is appended a collection of articles on the Shulḥan Arukh; (6) Va-Yikra Yiẓḥak (Leghorn, 1825), a homiletical commentary on Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, and the five scrolls.
