I saw in Rav Steinsaltz's commentary on Sanhedrin 17a a reference to Tosafos Rabbeinu Peretz. Is Tosafos Rabbeinu Peretz on Sanhedrin available online anywhere?

  • @robev It’s cited in Steinsaltz Sanhedrin (17a) – Zarka Sep 14 '20 at 18:44

I have not been able to locate any Tosafos Rabbeinu Peretz on Sanhedrin. Indeed, for what it's worth, Wikipedia reports that we don't have his comments on Sanhedrin.

However, thanks to @Dov, I was able to locate the existence of Tosafos Rabbeinu Peretz HaShalem. There, the book description states that they have printed from manuscripts the comments of Rabbeinu Peretz on other masechtos than what was previously available. They write that for Sanhedrin, they collected comments from the sefer Chamra VeChayii, written by Rav Chaim Benveniste, a 17th century Turkish Rav.

His sefer seems to be a Shita Mekubetzes style work, collecting the insights of Rishonim on Sanhedrin. It's not a book dedicated to Rabbeinu Peretz. Indeed, a search on Otzar HaChochmah yielded only 16 references to his comments in the entire work. Furthermore, they're only attributed to the students of Rabbeinu Peretz.

I assume this is what Rav Steinsaltz zt"l is referring to. If so, the two comments of Tosafos Talmidei Rabbeinu Peretz on 17a can be read here (bottom left, ד"ה אלא) and here (top right, ד"ה נגבית). If you have access to Otzar HaChochmah, an easier to read print of these comments can be viewed here.


On the Otzar HaChochma website you can access the Oz Vehadar Murchevet edition of Sanhedrin here which has the Tosafos Rabbeinu Peretz at the back (as detailed on page 8, second column on the left, first bold line) - however as it is beyond the free allowance you would have to pay to access the whole sefer.

  • Oz VeHadar doesn't have Tosafos Rabbeinu Peretz on Sanhedrin. In the back is only Tosafos HaRosh. I wonder if it even exists... – robev Sep 14 '20 at 15:54
  • This was the Murchevet version which according to pg.8 does include the Tosafos Rabbeinu Peretz? – Dov Sep 14 '20 at 15:58

    Every volume of Oz VeHadar has the exact same details pages at the beginning. That doesn't mean every volume has it. – robev Sep 14 '20 at 16:00
  • @Robev - there is a tosafos rabbeinu peretz on Sanhedrin - the content of the full set on shas is specified here. Refer to Volume 5 - nli.org.il/en/books/NNL_ALEPH990013648630205171/NLI – Dov Sep 14 '20 at 16:29
  • In which case - does this now render my answer correct - and if so, I would appreciate the downvote being removed pls – Dov Sep 14 '20 at 16:30
