Series:Studia Judaica 95
Aims and Scope
Isaac Alfasi (1013–1103) is respected as one of the major Medieval scholars of Jewish law and his Sefer ha-Halakhot is an important work of codification. This study examines his work on the Tractate Pesachim. The main focus is on Alfasi’s engagement with his main source, the Babylonian Talmud, and the ways he found additional sources for his arguments through the reassembly, addition, and deletion of existing sources.
