   Only edition of this commentary on Pirkei Avot by R. Hayyim Dov Paltrovits (Pelterovich). The title page describes Ez Hayyi as being desirable literal interpretations, more precious than fine gold and pearls, also myrrh and spices, from early and later sages, “its interior inlaid with love” (Song of Songs 3:10) of the Lord, on which it is founded. R. Paltrovits notes that he has written many more books on other subjects and prays that he will be able to bring them too to press. There are approbations from R. Simahah Ya’ir, R. Moses Nahum ben Benjamin Yerushalmisky, R. Menahem Nahum, R. Yerahmiel Isaiah Minzberg, R. Dov Nahman Shapira, R. Judah Leib ben Hayyim Nahum, R. Eliezer Shalom ha-Levi Epstein, R. Samuel Jacob Koppel Kligsburg, and R. Jacob David. There is an introduction and then the text, consisting or Avot in square unvoclaized Hebrew at the top of the page and the commentary Ez Hayyim below it in rabbinic letters. Ez Hayyim is a detailed comprehensive multifaceted commentary. In many instances R. Paltrovits provides several discourses to explain a Mishnah. At the end of the volume are five pages of names, in four columns to a page, of individuals who subscribed and assisted in publishing Ez Hayyim, organized by location.
