Detail Description

Commentary to the Pentateuch and anti-Reform polemic by R. David Judah Leib Silverstein (1820-1884), Hungarian rabbi. R. Silberstein was born in Bonyhad and studied under R. Meir Ash in Ungvar (Uzhorod). He served in several communities: Ujhely (Satoraljaujhely), Senta (in Yugoslavia), and Vacz near Budapest. He also lived in Jerusalem for eight years between 1859 and 1867. He was the author of the Shevilei David (1863), on the Pentateuch, and four volumes with the same name (1862–1880) on the four sections of the Shulhan Arukh. He was in communication with the outstanding contemporary Hungarian scholars, among others, R. Moses Schick, R. Abraham Judah ha-Kohen Schwartz, R. Menahem Mendel Baneth, and R. Amram Blum. He passed on in Vacz.
