SCHORR, ABRAHAM ḤAYYIM BEN NAPHTALI ẒEVI HIRSCH

SCHORR, ABRAHAM ḤAYYIM BEN NAPHTALI ẒEVI HIRSCH (d. 1632), Galician rabbi. It has been assumed that Schorr was of German origin since his father signed himself "Hirsch of Alsace," and Moses *Isserles in a responsum (no. 95) wrote to him urging him to remain as a rabbi in Germany. Schorr himself, however, served as rabbi in Galicia, in Satanov, Belz, and possibly Kremenets. His main work was Torat Ḥayyim, novellae on Bava Kamma, Bava Meẓia, and Bava Batra (1624), and on Eruvin, Sanhedrin, Shavu'ot, Avodah Zarah, Ḥullin, and Pesaḥim (1634), both published together in Prague in 1692. The work was based on the courses which he gave in his yeshivah and was widely used. The main purpose of the work was to establish the halakhah between Rashi and the tosafists when they differed, but it also contains aggadic material.

His Ẓon Kodashim on the order Kodashim, which he wrote together with his friend R. Mordecai Asher of Brzezany, was published posthumously by Schorr's grandson, Ḥayyim b. Ozer of Hildesheim. He is mentioned in the responsa of Benjamin Aaron *Slonik (no. 88) and by Joseph Solomon *Delmedigo in his Elim (Odessa ed. 1864, 93–95). According to tradition, Schorr died in Belz and was buried in Lemberg.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
