Description Information
   First edition. [1], 181. [1] ff. quarto 238:180 mm., usual age staining, wide margins. A very good copy loose in contemporary boards, split.
   First and perhaps only edition of these Hasidic discourses on the Torah by R. Jekuthiel Judah ben Elazar Nisan Teitelbaum (1808–1883) one of the greatest admorim in Hungary. R. Jekuthiel Judah was born in Drohobycz. At the age of ten he was entrusted to his grandfather, R. Moses, whom he always regard as his teachjer par excellence. In his youth he became friends with R. Herschele Lisker, the Lisker rebbe. His father-in-law was R. Moses David Ashkenazi, rabbi of Tolcsva, Hungary. R. Jekuthiel Judah of Sighet served first as rabbi at Stropkov. After his grandfather's death in 1841 he was rabbi in Ujhely, but was forced to leave under pressure by the Mitnaggedim. He then officiated in Gorlice and Drogobych. However, he became known chiefly as rabbi at Sighet, where he moved in 1858; he subsequently gathered around him many Ḥasidim, and also founded a yeshivah. R. Jekuthiel Judah supported the formation of Hevrah Mahzkei Hadat and supported the formation of an independent Orthodox communal organization. Jekuthiel Judah wrote many works, among them Yitav Lev, on the Torah (in five parts, 1875); Yitav Panim, on the festivals (in two parts, 1881–83); responsa Avnei Ẓedek (in two parts, 1885–86); and Rav Tov on the Torah (1889).
