About HaRav Yaakov Halperin

Authored six volumes discussing the 613 mitzvos found in the Torah, as well as a halachic commentary to the Talmudic sections of Taharos and Kodshim. The Baal Shem Tov said that he possessed the soul of HoRav Yitzchok Alfasi, who had written a similar commentary on the rest of Talmud but not on these two sections, and that the soul had descended to write a commentary on these sections. A portion of his Torah may be found in the book Imrei Noam, Parshas Shlach.
