26 Shvat - Yahrzeit of the Taz
26 Shvat - Yahrzeit of the Taz, Reb Dovid ben Shmuel Halevi. He is most famous for his commentary on Shulchan Aruch. His father-in-law was the Bach, Reb Yoel Sirkis. If I remember correctly his son-in-law was the Shages Aryeh. Reb Yisroel Dov of Vilednik in his sefer, Shearis Yisroel, quotes the Baal Shem Tov as saying that we should not go against the Taz and Bach in Halacha unless it is to be more stringent.
