   Homilies on the weekly Torah portion from R. Joseph Israel ben Aaron David Deutsch. The title is from “O my trampled one, and child of my threshing floor (Ben Gorni); that which I have heard from the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel, have I declared to you” (Isaiah 21:10). There is an introduction from R. Hayyim Aaron David Deutsch and R. Menahem Zevi Deutsch, the author’s sons and both serving as av bet din. Next is a three-page list, in three columns, of subscribers who made publication possible. The text is in two columns in rabbinic type. In addition to the discourses on the Torah there are discourses on other subjects, such as zayin Adar, Purim, and the Haggadah. At the end of the volume are siums on several tractates and a eulogy on R. Joseph Deutsch, av bet din Rodmitz.

R. Deutsch served as rabbi in Balassagyarmat for about fifty years. He was born in Pressburg c. 1843/84. His father, R. Aaron David Deutsch, was the author of Goren David. R. Joseph Israel Deutsch was a student of his father and of the Ketav Sofer. In 1872 he became as av bet din in Sa’andra and, in 1878, succeeded his father as av bet din in Balassagyarmat. R. Deutsch died on 27 Shevat 5687 (1927).
