Book by Rabbi David ben Zimra, printed by Reb Itzik the Printer, Furth 1781. | Cover page has the handwritten signature of Rabbi Yehoshua Freund, and a note that his son donated the book to the Beit Midrash Sha’arei Zion. | Rabbi Yehoshua Freund of Kroly (1767-1848) was born to Rabbi Yitzhak Karov, rabi of Papa and a family that descends from Rashi. He was beloved by many Admorim, especially the Yismach Moshe of Satmar, and the Chozeh of Lublin. When he was a baby his mother died and he was breastfed by a non-Jew once, and the Yismach Moshe said “had Rabbi Yehoshua not been breastfed by a non-Jew I and the Rebbe of Lublin would have been ashamed of him.” He was called Yehoshua in memory of the Pnei Yehoshua, who died a few years before his birth and was a relative (uncle of his great-grandfather). | New binding, stains, moth holes.
