Manuscript chiddushei Maharam Shik, in his holy hand. Autographed by his beloved student – "Sofer HaMelech" Rabbi Asher Le'amil Schwartz, 1874-1876

Complete manuscript of Tractate Kiddushin, in part on Mashechot and in part on Sugyot. On the first page of the manuscript that serves as the cover page, his student Rabbi Asher Le'Amil writes: "In 1874 here in Khust I purchased this booklet to write in it… the great and famous gaonour teacher and Rabbi Moshe Shik… his student writes with great haste, "SafraDebei the holyRav Asher Le'Amil Schwartz", Rabbi Asher Le'Amil, who knew and recognized the great responsibility in being the one who passes on the torah of his teacher to the next generations. He tried to be precise, even writing the dates of certain lessons. An example: [Page 45 Page 1] writes "which we learned in the winter of 1874" and signed with his name "the holy Asher Le'Amil Schwartz", or [Page 65] "until here the Rabbi spoke and continued to expound, and I did not copy, the words of the one described khust day 5, 1876 by the holy Asher Le'Amil Schwartz." As the manuscript confirms, the MaharamShik signed at the top of the manuscript his name in his handwriting. The manuscript before us is the original source of which a large number of Chiddushim excerpts were printed from Hamaharam Shik, (see the introduction to Chiddushei Maharam Shik on Masechet Kiddushin: "they were written…by the authors of the king… R. Yitzchak Teitelbaum… and R. Asher Le'Amil Schwartz"). At the end of his life, the MaharamShik used his two disciples as "the king's novelists", because his eyes darkened and he could not see. As he writes in his book MaharamShik's response, Section 1, chapter 32: "When I came from the city of Va'an, for I was there to ask and inquire with doctors to find a cure and remedy for my eyes, but to my great dismay I did not find." And in the introduction to his ChiddusheiAggadot on Masechet Avot: writes his great grandson Rabbi Mordechai Zvisegel Prager: "In the end of his life he suffered a great deal, for his eyes were dimmed." And when Rav Wezner Z"l was shown the manuscript in 5734, from great fondness of the manuscript, he wrote a long letter [attached], in which he writes, among other things, "and he bound Chiddushei Maharam Shik… the wonders of the teachings of the gaonz"l… and I did not come only as a joining member of thegaon Rabbis [Badatz the Eda Haredit, the Admor of Vizhnitz, Rabbi Shach, the Steipler, and others]. Which attest that the holy writings are true and stable… R. Asher Le'Amil, the copyist and writer lived, and the response of his teacher at the end of his days in particular, for now the gaon Segi Nehor… as famous and when our forefathers told us." As was said, for when his grandson Rabbi Chaim Zvi Schwartz from BneiBrak, as the manuscript was hidden in the family Gniza about a century.In 1974 he presented the manuscript to the greatest of the generation, all of them writing letters of enthusiastic approval and agreement [attached]. His grandson says in his name. "When my grandfather entered the Steipler's palace to show him the manuscript, the Steipler wrote an agreement, and when he left the room the Steipler called him back and added the word "Maran" to the name of the Maharam Shik. Indeed, we can see that the word Maran was added later. | Rabbi Moshe Shik - Maharam Shik [1807-1879], Av Beit Din of Yergin and Khust and Rosh Yeshiva there, the distinct disciple of the Chatam Sofer, who would affectionately call him "Meinar Aron Sefarim." And continues the ways of his Rabbi in the war against compromises in reform, his letter is known of which he wrote about them: "According to the religion of our Holy Torah, because they were heretical against the Torah from heaven, as many of their words and books of the kind testify, they are not Jews and as complete Gentiles." He was the leader of Hungarian Jewry after the Chatam Sofer, and after his death they eulogized "from Moshe (the Chatam Sofer) until Moshe (Maharam Shik) another did not rise up as Moses." His books - Responsa and Chiddushim glorify the eastern wall of Torah literature from all times. | Due to the spread of the manuscript writing over three years, the shape of the pages vary, some of them divided into two pages and some in full pages.
