Description
   Engagement contract executed at the wedding and signed by R. Simeon b. David Oppenheim (1753-1851), Rabbi of Pest. He was born in Kromau, Moravia, and passed on at Pest. His graveside has become an annual pilgrimage where many wonderful stories are told of miraculous deeds. He seems to have pursued his studies in Prague, where he lived at the end of the eighteenth century. He published: Ammud ha-Shahar (Prague, 1789) variation of of Baruch Lindau's text-book of geography, natural science; Nezer ha-Kodest (Ofen 1831) on religious ethics, which includes major parts of R. Jehiel ben Jekuthiel Anaw's "Ma'alot ha-Middot" (Cremona, 1556); Har ha-Karmel (Prague 1812), novellae on the laws, in the Yoreh De'ah, of menstruation and ritual bath. His father-in-law was R. Loeb Oppenheim, rabbi in Freistadt, from whom he adopted the family name.
