Israel ben Samuel Ashkenazi of Shklov

(d. 1839)
   Palestinian talmudic scholar of Lithuanian origin. He was born in Shklov, and during his years in Lithuania was entrusted with the publication of the Vilna Gaon's Elijah ben Solomon Zalman commen-taries. He later settled in Safed. In 1816 he was chosen to succeed Menahem Mendel of Shklov, the leader of the Kolel ha- Perushim, in Safed. After an earthquake in 1837, he moved to Jerusalem. His Peat ha-Shulhan supplements the Shulhan Arukh with a codification of laws relating to life in Palestine, which had been omitted by Joseph Caro.
