   Halakhic novellae and responsa on Shulhan Arukh Yoreh Deah by R. Mordecai Judah Loeb ben Naphtali Hertz Winkler. There is an introduction from the author, followed by a table of contents. The text is comprised of one hundred seventy one entries by R. Winkler on Yoreh Deah. It is set in two columns in rabbinic type excepting headers, initial words, and introductory lines noting whom entries are directed or in response to.

R. Winkler (1844-1932) was born in Lepontovic in the vicinity of Nitra. He served as the rabbi of Mad in Transylvania, where he headed a bet midrash. Among his students was R. Mordecai ben Joshua Briszk (18841944), founder and head of the yeshivah at Tasnad. R. Joseph Zevi Duschinsky (18681948) was his son-in-law. The three years R. Duschinsky spent in R. Winklers house were considered by him, due to his father-in-law's fine personality, as being among the main formative influences in his life. R. Winkler also wrote responsa on other parts of the Shulhan Arukh.
