Novella of R. Yehuda Lowey (MaHarAL) on the Tur, as well as Ma’amorim on the Yomim Tovim titled Imrei Moed. With the approbations of R. Yedidyah Weil and R. Yitzchok HaKohen of Sulzbach.
The MaHaRAL, R. Yehuda Lowey (1512-1609), was born in Worms and was the Rav and Rosh Yeshiva in Nikolsburg, Posen and Prague.
In addition to being one the greatest of his era, the MaHaRAL is particularly famous for his distinctive explanations of Agados Chazal. He published most of his philosophical compositions during his lifetime, thereby preserving them for posterity. Unfortunately many of his other works on Halacha and his Talmudic novella were lost. Chassidic leaders and especially the Maggid of Kozhnitz recognized the importance of the reflective teachings of the MaHaRAL and encouraged their reprinting at the end of the 18th century. In the words of R. Yitzchok Hutner, the teachings of the MaHaRAL are “Nistar BeLashon Nigleh”, meaning “That which is hidden in the language of that which is revealed”
