|Rabbi Shlomo Yosef Zevin (1890-1978) was universally acknowledged as one of the great Talmudic and Halachic prodigies of the century. Born in Kazimirov, Belorussia, he won early recognition as a genius of the first order. The Bolshevik Revolution ended his prospects of a fruitful rabbinic career in Russia and, although he was briefly permitted to publish a scholarly Talmudic monthly, the trend was one of generally increasing oppression and frequent arrest for members of the Russian rabbinate.|
He emigrated to Eretz Yisrael in 1934 and soon won acclaim for his prolific and effective writing as much as for his unusual breadth of knowledge. He had a rare ability to simplify and clarify, and he was almost unique in his knack of presenting complex material in a form that could be grasped by knowledgeable laymen as well as accomplished scholars. His most monumental and enduring achievement is undoubtedly the Talmudic Encyclopedia. He also wrote prolifically, publishing many works of great scholarly and popular appeal.
