First edition of the classic work of responsa, by R. Yechezkel Landau. Self-published during the author’s lifetime. Includes both parts of Mahadurah Kamma. Received to enormous acclaim, the sefer serves as one of the most fundamental halachic works of the Achronim.
R. Yechezkel Landau (1713-1793), was born in Opatow and studied in the great Yeshivos of Ludmir and Brody. He served first as a Dayan in Brody and later as a Rav in Yampol. Whilst in Yampol, his reputation preceded him to the renowned Jewish community of Prague which retained him as Rav until his passing. He was held in awe by his rabbinical contemporaries as well as the masses and was greatly respected in government circles. World famous as one of the most prominent Rabbinical leaders of his generation, he led a great Yeshiva and authored many important works, including his classic halachic responsa Noda B’Yehuda (after which he is known), Dogul Mer’vavah on the Shulchan Aruch and Tzion L’Nefesh Chaya (abbreviated as Tz’lach) on the Talmud.
