Large Manuscript by
the Yerios Shlomo
Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Ullman
A large manuscript of handwritten chiddushim on topics in Shas and Shulchan Aruch by Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Ullman, Av Beis Din of Mako and author of Yerios Shlomo.
The manuscript opens with a table of contents entitled “List of Sugyos Found in This Sefer Composed by…My Father and Master the Great and Wondrous Genius Author of Yerios Shlomo”.
Both the beginning and end of the manuscript feature the autograph of the author’s grandson Rabbi Meir Ullman [of Satmar], who was the son of Rabbi Shlomo Zalman’s son Rabbi Binyamin Ullman of Volka, who printed the Yerios Shlomo al Sugyos (Munkacs, 1813).
Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Ullman (1792-1863) was one of the great Rabbanim and spiritual mentors in Hungary whose talmidim were great Rabbanim and morei hora’ah of their generation. Rabbi Shlomo Zalman was born in Ansbach to Rabbi Shalom Charif, author of Divrei Rash, and married the daughter of Rabbi Simcha Bunim Eiger, Av Beis Din of Mattersdorf and brother of Rabbi Akiva Eiger. In 1826, he was appointed Av Beis Din of Mako where he served as Rav for close to 40 years until his passing in 1863. He was a prolific author whose written legacy includes Sifrei Yerios Shlomo on Yoreh Deah, Shu”t, Sugyos and Drashos.
Contemporary Rabbanim, among them Mahari Assad and the Divrei Chaim, lauded his wisdom and writings, and described him with awe-inspiring accolades. Mahari Assad portrayed him as “the light and sanctity of Yisrael” and “Glory of the generation, wondrous among the Sanhedrin”; and the Divrei Chaim wrote that “since the day the Noda B’Yehuda appeared, there has not been a work like this”. It is said that the Divrei Chaim would frequently quote from the sefer Yerios Shlomo.
