"Hokhmat adam, with the commentary Binat adam (1815) . This latter work deals with matters relating to the Yoreh de‘ah section of the Shulhan ‘arukh—especially the laws of ritual slaughter, kosher food, vows, menstruation, lending at interest, charity, and mourning—along with a few matters relating to marriage and civil law. In both Haye adam and Hokhmat adam, Danzig usually presents only the final halakhic ruling on an issue, though at times he places a dispute before the reader and decides between the two opinions. He often relies on the commentators to the Shul? An ‘arukh—including the Gaon of Vilna, whom Danzig admired and to whom he was related by marriage—but he does not hesitate to rule against them. Alongside his theoretical arguments justifying his rulings, he often offers explanations based on personal experience. " - YIVO Encyclopedia. Subjects: Danzig, Abraham ben Jehiel Michal, 1748-1820.
