Detail Description

Letter in tamudic novellae by R. Baruch Asher Perles, Hungarian Talmudist (1789-1857). He was a descendant of the rabbinical family of Perles or Perls, which migrated from Bohemia to Hungary, and numbered among its ancestors on one side Rabbi Judah Löw ben Bezaleel and on the other R. Asher b. Jehiel. The favorite pupil of R. Götz Kohn Schwerin of Baja, R. Perles was won over to the simple interpretation of the Bible ("peshaṭ"), becoming antagonistic to the pilpul, which he had learned at the yeshivah of R. Moses Sofer at Presburg. He was assistant rabbi ("dayyan") at Baja, and officiated as rabbi from R. Kohn Schwerin's death until Nascher assumed the office. Uniting Talmudic scholarship with deep piety and a blameless life.
