Throughout the ages, there have been many gedolei Yisrael who shared a father-in-law and son-in-law bond.  One of these special bonds which was unique in its closeness, is that of the renowned authors of Halachic works, the Bach and the Taz. Rabbi Yoel Sirkes was the author of the commentary on the Tur called Bayis Chadash, and thus became known as the Bach, which is the acronym for that work. His son-in-law, Rabbi David HaLevi Segal, was the author of the commentary on the Shulchan Aruch called Turei Zahav, and thus became known as the Taz, which is the acronym for that work.
