   Commentary to tractate Avot with text by R. Nahum Shmaryahu b. Mordecai Judah Schechter (1886-1967) was born in Falticeni, Romania. R. Schechter was educated firstly by his father the Dayan of Falticeni, then by his uncle R. Joshua Folk Wolfson. He received ordination from the Maharsham and other important rabbinical giants. An erudite Talmudic scholar, he served in the rabbinical positions of Moldavia Darabani, Husi, and Bucharest before emigration to Erez Israel in 1952. His only son R. Eliezer Zev passed on in 1939; his only daughter in 1960. R. Schechter left his huge library to the Ruzhin Yeshiva in Jerusalem.

Perah Sushan was printed in Cluj (Klausenburg) in 1925 with important approbations and acclaim. He also wrote Aniyat Amen (Cluj 1936) an elegy on R. Abraham M. Friedman, rabbi of Stephans; Bet haMidrash Shem ve-Eiver (v.1, Jerusalem 1965) responsa on divorce law and proper spelling of names in divorce decrees, v. 2-4 remain in manuscript.
