ARYEH LEIB BEN ELIJAH (1808–1888), Ukrainian rabbi and halakhist. Aryeh Leib was born in Satanov. For a time he engaged in trade, but before 1834, he was av bet din of Zaslav (now Izyaslav, Ukraine), a position he apparently held until his death. He corresponded on halakhic matters with leading authorities, including solomon kluger . His works are Arugat ha-Bosem (1869), novellae on the Yoreh De'ah section of the Shulḥan Arukh (1–110), including some responsa; Shem Aryeh (1874), responsa to which were added two treatises later republished separately under the same title (1914). His works received the rare approbation of joseph saul nathanson . He used to sign his halakhic decisions "Aryeh Leibush Bolichover" (Bolichov was his father's birthplace). -BIBLIOGRAPHY: L.
