R. Issachar Dov Rokeah (1854–1927), upon whose teachings these novellae are largely based, was the son and successor of R. Joshua Rokeah (1825–1894). R. Issachar Dov Rokeah was greatly influenced by R. Aaron of Chernobyl although R. Aaron taught a form of Hasidism that differed radically from that of the Belz school. R. Issachar Dov was an exacting leader of Galician Orthodoxy and also headed the Mahazikei ha-Dat. In particular he opposed the Agudat Israel and denounced any innovations. He strongly opposed Zionism in any form. In 1914, when the war front reached Belz, he fled to Hungary and lived in Újfehértó where he succeeded in winning many Hungarian Jews to Belz Hasidism. In 1918 he moved to Munkács (Mukacevo ) and became embroiled in a bitter quarrel with the ẓaddik of Munkács which gave rise to a voluminous exchange of polemics. In 1921 R. Issachar Dov returned to Galicia and settled first in Holschitz, near Jaroslaw, moving back to Belz in 1925.
