Quick Reference

Talmudist, Kabbalist, preacher, and Rabbi (d. 1764). Eybeschitz's fame as a Talmudist rests chiefly on his Urim ve-Thummim, a work of keen analysis of legal concepts in the form of a commentary to the Shulhan Arukh, Hoshen Mishpat. In his early career Eyebeschitz was the head of a Yeshivah and a preacher in Prague, where he was on friendly terms with Christian prelates with whom he discussed and debated theological question. Many of his sermons were collected in his Yaarat Devash, a work that provided generations of Jewish preachers with sermonic material.
