    In his Sefer Omer Udvorim he expresses thanks to his Son-in-law R’ Chaim Shalom Fischer.

    The name Tzikolon ציקולון is pretty rare and needs some explenation, does anyone have some idea?

    It may be a an Acronym, or at least not a pure Hebrew word.

    Isn’t a Tzikolon a”bag?”

    Thanks Ben-BZ,

    Asher, see link below where this word is mentioned only once in Tanac”h (Melachim B 4-42) and is disputed by the Mefarshim.

    Most common is as Gedalya mentioned, that it reffers to a Knapsack, Backpack.
