Detail Description 

On Title:  religioese Betrachtungen fuer die ... Festtage von Hirsch Brod, Rabbiner in Kitzee in Ungarn...

Homiletics by R. Zevi Hirsch ben David Teomim. 

R. Zevi Hirsch ben David Teomim Brod (d. 1820) was a talmudic sage and scholar, disciple of the Chatam Sofer. His father resided in Hungary – Brod from which the family takes its name. After marrying R. Zevi Hirsch continued to learn while living in the home of his father-in-law, the philanthropist R. Jacob Bak until he was offered the position of rabbi in Szenice. In 1780, he was selected to be rabbi of  Kittsee (Kopcseny), Hungary, where he served for about forty years and also headed a yeshivah. When a Hebrew press was founded in Vienna  R. Zevi Hirsch hoped to print his works but  lacked the means to do so; they were only published posthumously. Erez Zevi and Te’omei Zeviyyah (pt. 1, Vienna, 1823; pt. 2, Presburg, 1846) the first of his works to be published, was ready for publication by 1814. He also wrote Shenei Ofarim (Prague, 1825), sermons, published by his son Aaron.
