When the Pitchei Teshuva (on the daf of Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah) quotes teshuvot of the Tzemach Tzedek, who is he quoting? Is he quoting Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneersohn, the Tzemach Tzedek of Lubavitch or Rabbi Menahem Mendel Krochmal, the Tzemach Tzedek of Nikolsburg?


The first print of the Tzemach Tzedek from Lubavitch was in 1871.

The Pischei Teshuva passed away in 1868.

Therefore it can be assumed that he never saw the Shu"t Tzemach Tzedek from Lubavitch.

First print of the Shu"t Tzemach Tzedek

  • Was that the first sefer to be published under that name by Lubavitchers? – Noach MiFrankfurt May 19 '16 at 23:25
  • @NoachmiFrankfurt yes – Shmuel May 20 '16 at 17:21
