R. Yaakov Emden commonly known as the YAaVeTZ was a preeminent Rov in Germany who championed Orthodox Judaism in the face of the influence of the Sabbatean movement. Acclaimed for his extensive knowledge and a prolific author, his seforim are extremely highly regarded. Thirty one of his works were published during his lifetime (this one being the very first) and ten posthumously, whilst others remain in manuscript. A son of the Chacham Tzvi, and a descendant of Elijah Ba’al Shem of Chelm, he lived most of his life in Altona where he earned a living by printing seforim.
On the first page there is a printed diagram of the Mizbeach. Includes the final pages of errata and omissions.
R. Mordechai Michoel Yaffe (1803-1868) was one of R. Akiva Eiger’s closest talmidim and later his close confidant. Known as a tremendous Talmid Chochom he served as Rov in Zadon and later Shmigel. He later led the famed “Kloiz” in Hamburg. A prolific author he wrote various important seforim including, responsa MaHaRaM Yaffe.
