Description

The Taz and Shach stand as two of the most influential halachic commentaries until today. While both excelled in scholarship from an early age, they led very disparate paths to prominence. Coming from a younger generation, the Shach might have viewed the Shulchan Aruch with greater validity than the Taz, who's own title "Turei Zahav" serves as an ode to the Tur. Despite both becoming leading luminaries of the time, we tried to crack the mystery- did the two of them get along with each other? We looked at various indications with opposing conclusions.
