  1. Skeptic says:

    How does this compare to Lieberman’s Tosefta k’feshuta? Do they compliment one another? Or are they different in purpose/style?

  2. J. says:

    He originally came to London to be the Rav of the Machzikei Hadass community (a position that Rav Kook held during his sojourn in London), and only later moved to the London Beth Din.

  3. Rabbi Joshua Maroof says:

    I had no idea this was available online! I purchased several of the volumes over the past couple of years, they are truly outstanding.

  4. Yisrael says:

    What is the largest seforim store in new york? I am looking for a copy of Rabbi Mordechai Miller’s sefer “Yom Tov Shiurim to get asap. If anyone knows how I could get it, I’d really appreciate it, thank you!

  5. book sleuth says:

    Biggest will not help you here. Both Eichler’s and Zundel Berman do not have the sefer. Even online used book stores list this as out of print and hard to get. http://www.jewishusedbooks.com/prodview.asp?idProduct=47156

  6. ├×anbo says:

    To find things in print, try Biegeleisen, and for used/antique, Seforim World (expensive-ish) and Pinter’s (less so, but more chaotic shelving) all in Brooklyn.

  7. Rabbi Joshua Maroof says:

    Our local Judaica Store in Silver Spring,MD, “Eli Chai’s”, had this sefer in stock, last time I checked.

  8. lawrence.kaplan says:

    In the Intro to Tosefta ki-Peshutah Rabbi Prof. Liebrman states that most of the explanations (rubbo ke-kulo) of Hazon Yehezkel can be found in Hasdei David, which he refers to as THE commentary par excellence on the Tosefta. As for the contribution Tosefta ki-Peshutah makes to the already existing literature, see Lieberman’s Intro there.

  9. Hirhurim says:

    Prof. Lieberman presumably meant the Chiddushim, the line-by-line commentary, and not the Biurim, the lomdish excurses.

  10. Nachum says:

    By the way, why’d you switch from the KAJ piece?

  11. Hirhurim says:

    The copyright issue had not been resolved, contrary to my prior understanding.

  12. Rafael Araujo says:

    “Prof. Lieberman presumably meant the Chiddushim, the line-by-line commentary, and not the Biurim, the lomdish excurses.”

    Agree. I have always found Chazon Yechezkel much more “user friendly” and easier to use than Chasdei Dovid, which can found in the back of the Standard Vilna Shas with Tosefta.

  13. lawrence kaplan says:

    The Hasdei David found in the back of the Shas is an abridged and truncated edition. The full edition has now been reprinted.

  14. Steve Brizel says:

    For those interested, there is a volumn entitled Chazon Yechezkel, which has Drashos, etc of R Abramsky ZL as well.
