Tur Even HaEzer surrounded by the 'Bayit Chadash" commentary printed here for the first time. In the author's preface, he writes that while he was writing this book, the Sm"a's book Perishah U'Derishah was printed. He reviewed it and commented on it; these comments are printed in "Kuntress HaAcharon" printed here at the beginning of the book.

Refer to the Hebrew catalog text for a brief biography of Rabbi Yoel Sirkis.


Many Chassidic legends are connected to the Ba"ch's halachic decisions, and it is accepted among Chassidim to be lenient regarding chadash outside of the Land of Israel in accordance with the Ba"ch's opinion, according to a tradition handed down by the Ba'al Shem Tov: "Since the Ba"ch determined it as such, this is the Heavenly ruling as well."
