Levush. Complete Set. Prague 1609
Printed during the author’s lifetime!
Rare edition of the Levush, by R. Mordechai Yaffe. Includes all four parts; Levush Ha’Tcheiles on Orach Chaim, Levush Ateres Zahav on Yoreh Deah, Levush Butz V’Argamon on Even HaEzer and Levush Ir Shushan on Choshen Mishpat. With five title pages, bound in four volumes.
R. Mordechai Yaffe (1530-1612), known as The Levush, was born in Prague and learned under R. Shlomo Luria (Ma’HaRSHaL) in Lublin and the Rema in Cracow. After his marriage he settled in Prague, where he established a Yeshiva. Following the expulsion of the Jews from Prague in 1557, he settled in Italy. He later served in various important rabbinical positions, including Lublin and Posen. Received with enormous acclaim, the Levush is one of the most fundamental Halachic works.
