Hayyim (Eliezer) ben Isaac "Or Zaru’a" (late 13th century) was a "German rabbi and halakhic authority, called "Or Zaru’a" after the famous work composed by his father, Isaac b. Moses of Vienna. Hayyim was orphaned in his early youth. While his father, Isaac b. Moses, the author of the Or Zaru’a, is mentioned numerous times throughout the tosafot commentaries, Hayyim is only mentioned in the Tosafot Yeshanim, a variant version of the tosafot commentaries. Hayyim’s responsa (Leipzig, 1865; reprinted Jerusalem, 2002, with commentary) are especially valuable for the light they shed on the people, places, and events of his time. Some of the responsa provide important source material on Jewish-Christian relations in the 13th century. Most of Hayyim’s decisions are based on those of the French and German halakhic authorities, particularly on his father’s Or Zaru’a. Knowledge about the life and teaching of Hayyim "Or Zaru’a" derives from a book of responsa of which he was the author and a book of homiletic sermons (derashot) which was published under the title Derashot MHR"H, Halakhic Decisions of Rabbi Hayyim Or Zaru’a, first edition according to Parma MS Moscow by Yitzhak Shimshon Lange (Jerusalem, 1973) . From the copious historical material found in his responsa, much can be learned about the Jewish communities (Kehillot) , their internal organization, leadership, rights, and obligations. We also learn how he grappled with the challenges and dangers of living as a Jew in the midst of a medieval, gentile society" (Derovan, Eidelberg and Horowitz in EJ 2010) . OCLS lists 5 copies worldwide (JTS, George Washington University, Harvard, YU, Brandeis) . Bumped corners. Repair to spine. Light yellowing of pages. Good condition. (Heb-19-3).
