Description Information
   Only edition. [8], 74, [2] ff. folio 320:190 mm., wide margins, light age and damp staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary boards, rubbed.
   Only edition of these responsa on all four parts of the Shulhan Arukh and novellae from R. Issur Judah ben Nehemiah of Brisk. The title page is followed by errata, an introduction and a preface. Some of the responsa in Ezrat Yehudah deal with the problem of agunot that arose in consequence of the great fire which swept Brest-Litovsk in 1847. R. Issur Judah was in correspondence with R. Joseph Saul Nathanson (Ezrat Yehudah, 59a–b). In his introduction he mentions other works which have not been published.

R. Issar Judah ben Nehemiah of Brisk (d. 1876) was a Lithuanian rabbi. He lived in Szydlowiec, Brest-Litovsk (Brisk), where he was head of the bet din, and Siedlce. He immigrated to Ereẓ Israel toward the end of his life and died there. He was the author of, in addition to Ezrat Yehudah, Nehamat Yehudah (1866), comprising two parts – Igra de-Shemata, essays on halakhic novellae, and Igra de-Pirka, pilpulistic homilies and novellae which aimed at resolving difficulties in Maimonides' code.
