   Novellae on Shulchan Arukh, Orah Hayyim (see below) by R. David Solomon Eibenschutz (c. 1755-1813), born in Jezierzany. He made aliyah to Zfat in 1809 where he passed on and is interred. He was a pupil of R. Moses Zevi Heller, author of "Geon Zevi," and occupied the position of rabbi in Buzhanow, Soroki (Volhynia), and Jassy, (Rumania). From the last-named city he went to Palestine and remained there till his death. He was the author of many kabalistic and Talmudical works, which still exist in manuscript. He also wrote "Levushe Serad," in two parts. The first part contains a commentary on the Shulhan Arukh, Orah Hayyim, with comments on R. David b. Samuel's "Ture Zahav" and R.Abraham Abele Gumbinner's "Magen Abraham"; at the end of this part is added the plan of the Temple as described by Ezekiel (Mohilev, 1818). The second part is on Shulhan Arukh, Yoreh De'ah (Mohilev 1812). His "Ne'ot Deshe" is a compilation of 138 responsa, in two parts, the first of which was published in Lemberg, 1861, while the second is in manuscript. "'Arbe Nahal" is also in two parts, the first being a treatise on the Pentateuch, the second consisting of sermons (Kopust, Sudilkov, 1835).

In 1847 the Shapira printing press was established by the three brothers Hanina Lipa, Aryeh Leib, and Joshua Heschel Shapira, sons of R. Samuel Abraham Abba Shapira, the printer in Slavuta. Until 1862 this was one of the only two Hebrew presses the Russian government permitted to operate in the whole of Russia, the other being in Vilna. This press had 18 hand presses and four additional large presses. In 1851 Aryeh Leib broke away and established his own printing press in Zhitomir. In these two establishments only sacred books of every kind were printed.
