About this Item

Folio. 123pp. 1/4 leather over blue cloth. Seminal work on Jewish Slaughtering (Shechitah) by renowned Rabbi Alexander Sender Shor (see below). In accordance with rabbinic custom, Schor is known by the title of this work - as the Tevuot Shor. Tevuot Shor consists of three parts: Simlah Hadashah (a digest of the laws of ritual slaughter - shehita and trefut), Tevuot Shor (an Index to the laws) and 'Bekor Shor' (miscellaneous appended material including novellae on both the 'halaka' and 'aggada' to 'Hulin' and other tractates). The work attained great popularity. It has been republished at least 17 times and came to be regarded as the authoritative work on the subject. Schor generally assumes a stringent interpretation of the relevant laws. In practice, knowledge of' 'Tevuot Schor' was regarded as a prerequisite for a 'Shohet' (Ritual Kosher Slaughterer) before he was granted a 'kabbala' (a permit to practice kosher slaughtering).

On the author (Source: Public Domain):Alexander Sender Shor (ca. 1655 to 1737) was the son of Rabbi Efraim Zalman Shor , Magid of Lvov; he was born in Lvov and orphaned as an infant. Alexander was something of a prodigy and was appointed Rabbi of Hovenov (vicinity of Belz) as a youth (some say as early as 1670). Shor was married to Voytel, the daughter of Moshe Mordechai Leibush of Zolkiew, president of the Council of Four Lands. About 1704 he resigned his position in Hovenov (.). He went to live in Zolkiew where he remained for the rest of his life, devoting himself to study and writing and earning his living working in a distillery. He died 27 Shvat 5497 (1737) and is buried in Zolkiev; his wife died in Zolkiew on 24 Heshvan 5500.Shor was considered one of the foremost scholars of his age. Not in Bet Eked.
