Manuscript, Kuntres of innovations on tractate Sukkah handwritten by the Tzaddik Gaon Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried, author of Kitzur Shulchan Aruch – passages that have not been published.
This is a Kuntres of 67 pp. handwritten by the author of the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch with his innovations on tractate Sukkah.
Most of the innovations appearing in this Kuntres were printed in his book Pnei Shlomo on tractate Sukkah, which was printed for the first time in 1989 and was published by the Jerusalem Institute. Apparently, the innovations appearing in the book were copied from another manuscript (by him or by a copyist) and not from this manuscript. This KUntres contains several passages that were not printed in his book Pnei Shlomo. In addiiton, there are also textual variations in the passages appearing in this Kuntres compared to the printed version, the ones appearing in this Kuntres being a revised version of the printed one. The variations are apparent already in the first passage of this manuscript.
[Some of the passages that were not printed: the last passage of leaf 2b, the passage begining on leaf 3a and ending on the following page; the last passage at the end the second chapter on leaf 26a].
The Tzaddik Gaon Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried (1804-1886) the renowned Rav of Ungvár (Uzhhorod) was a disciple of the Gaon Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Heller, the author of Tiv Gittin. Author of many books including Keset Sofer, Torat Zevach, Lechem VeSimlah, Ohalei Shem; however he is most renowned for his valuable book the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, which is a basic and important book and had 14 editions that were printed in his lifetime. Many famed Geonim wrote of his greatness including the Chasam Sofer, the holy gaon Rabbi Shimon Sofer and the Maharam Schick. When he was 30, in 1834, he published for the first time his famed book on Hilchot Stam, Keset Sofer, that received an enthusiastic approbation from the Chasam Sofer.
The Gaon Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried taught students his entire life, writing down the new things he had learned during those lessons. In his lifetime, he published his innovations on the Shas in his book Pnei Shlomo on tractate Bava Batra only. His innovations on the other tractates of the Shas remained unpublished. Only in the years 1989-1999, the Jerusalem Institute published the five volumes of Pnei Shlomo series on the entire Shas.
