On the tombstone of my distant cousins the TERSUHOWs, it says "Turei Zahav."
That is the name of a major halachic work written by Rabbi David ben Samuel.
He is generally known as the Taz, after the book. Turei Zahav means golden
TERSUHOW is in fact Turei Zahav. My cousin, who is (was) also a Levi, would
appear to be a descendent of the Taz and the surname seems to reflect that.
Does anyone have any more information on the TAZ or my cousins, the TERSUHOWs?
