Mashmiey Yeshuah on the Passover haggadah. By Rabbi Yitzchak Eizik Schorr, Av Beit Din of Bocşa, grandson and disciple of Rabbi Aharon Moshe (Taubes), Av Beit Din of Yas [Iaşi].

With the haggadah text. The chronogram indicates 1870, but it was actually printed in 1866.

The author [1836-1894] was the grandson and disciple of Rabbi Aharon Moshe Taubes, and published his works. He was the rabbi of Bocşa, Moldova. In 1869, his father-in-law, Rabbi Levi Yitzchak Frenkel, Av Beit Din of Bucharest, asked him to help lead the city. He then became known as the "young rabbi." In 1873, he was appointed to succeed his father-in-law. He authored a number of works, including Tiferet Yisrael [Lemberg, 1872]; Meorei Ohr [Lemberg, 1893], and more. He was a noted adjudicator to whom many turned with their questions. He was a chassid of Rabbi Yehoshua Rokeach of Belz. When he heard of his rabbi's passing, he became ill and passed away a month later.
