Description
   Eulogy for R. Hayyim Davidsohn ben David Tebele (d. March 17, l854) by R. Benjamin David Rabinowicz. The title page gives the location as Khal Jeshurun. The title page is dated, kills, and [He] returns to life (cf. I Samuel 2:6). R. Davidsohn was rabbi in Warsaw for fifteen years. The verso of the title page has the censors (J. Tugendhold) approval to print. The text begins with a quote from tractate Shabbat 105b, that R. Shimon says that anyone who stands by a person when his soul leaves him is required to do kria. What is this comparable to, to a Sefer Torah that was burned. There is a listing of three pertinent principle categories concerning a Sefer Torah which are compared to the subject individual, that is, R. Davidsohn. On 7a-8b is a discussion of Kriat Shema of shaharit and praying Minhah, based on R. Davidsohns careful observance of these mizvot and, from 8b 11b Kanfe Yonah, an addenda by R. Isaac, brother of the author.
