Hardcover, folio, 57 l pages, 39 cm. In Hebrew. SUBJECT (S) : Talmud -- Commentaries. Hoeschel (1578–1648) , was a “Polish rabbi. Joshua Hoeschel was born in Vilna. In his youth he studied under Samuel b. Feibush in Przemysl and then in the yeshivot of Meir b. Gedaliah of Lublin and Joshua Falk of Lemberg. From 1634 to 1639 he served as rabbi in the towns of Grodno, Tiktin, Przemysl, and Lemberg. At the beginning of 1640 he was appointed head of the yeshivah of Cracow in succession to Nathan Spira, and from 1640 to 1644 he served there as rabbi in an honorary capacity. He died in Cracow. His pupils included Shabbetai b. Meir ha-Kohen, Gershon Ulif Ashkenazi, and Menahem Mendel Auerbach. Halakhic problems were addressed to him from many countries. He corresponded on kabbalistic topics with his relative, the kabbalist Samson b. Pesah of Ostropol. Joshua Hoeschel did not follow the method of pilpul; he strove toward greater independence in the domain of halakhah and directive ruling, stating, "according to the custom of our country anything printed in the Shulhan Arukh may not, God forfend, be changed, any more than the law of Moses… God spare us from such a view. The judge may decide only according to the facts before him… and anyone may disagree, even with the words of the rishonim, if he has definite proof. " He wrote Meginnei Shelomo, on eight tractates of the Talmud, in which he defends Rashi against the difficulties raised by the tosafists; the responsa Penei Yehoshu'a, on the four divisions of the Shul? An Arukh. ” (Horowitz in EJ, 2007) . OCLC lists 1 copy worldwide (Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies) . Ex-library with usual markings. Chipping to corners and edges of cover. Staining to pages.
