   Written two months before his passing. R. Isaac b. Mordecai Oplatka of Prague (c.1820-1900) was born in Prague. He was a devoted student and disciple of the Hatam Sofer who asked him to emigrate to Erez Israel. He did so in 1838 and never left the Holy Land thereafter. He married the daughter of R. Barukh Ayash, grandson of the Rishon LeZion, R. Jacob Moses Ayash. R. Isaac, an erudite talmudic scholar wrote Peri Yitzhak (Jerusalem 1909) novellae to several Talmudic tractates, only a small part was published.
