Ephraim Zalman Margulies (sometimes transcribed as Margolis) (19 December 1762 – 24 August 1828) (Hebrew: אפרים זלמן בן מנחם מאניש מרגליות‎) was a Galician rabbi born in Brody, brother of Chaim Mordechai Margulies.

Biography

He received his Talmudic education at different yeshivas, in which he distinguished himself for the acuteness of his intellect and for his astonishing memory. His correspondence with Ezekiel Landau and other leading Talmudists soon gained for him a high reputation. He established a banking-house which proved so successful that within a short time he became quite wealthy. In 1785 he published his responsa entitled Bet Hadash ha-Hadashot, and in the following year the rabbis of Brody elected him one of their number. Being of independent means, he opened in his house a yeshivah of which he was the head; several of his pupils became eminent rabbis.

Works

Margolis was considered a high rabbinical authority. He published the following works:

Bet Efrayim (2 vols., Lemberg, 1809–10), commentary on parts of the Shulchan Arukh, Yoreh De'ah
Oration at the funeral of Rabbi Meir Kristianopoler (ib. 1815)
Bet Efrayim (4 parts, ib. 1818), responsa on the four parts of the Shulchan 'Arukh

Yad Efrayim (Zolkiev, 1823), extensive commentaries on the names of men and of women to be employed in letters of divorce
Shem Efrayim (Berdychev, 1826), commentary on the Torah

Many other works by him are still in manuscript (as of 1906).

May the merit of thet  tzadik Rabbi Ephraim Zalman Margulies protect us all. Amen
