Acronym for Ba'al Halachot Gedolot, a Geonic-era halachic work. The authorship of this work is a matter of debate. Some attribute it to Rav Yehudai the son of Shmuel Gaon, who headed the academy in Sura, Babylonia and lived from approximately 820 through 905, while others claim that it was written by Rav Shimon of Kaira.
