Halachic rulings and Jewish customs for the entire year, along with essays on mussar and kabbalah arranged according to the three pillars; Torah, avodah and gemilus chassadim, by Rabbi Moshe Meth, Av Beis Din of Premishla.
The present sefer is a treasure trove of halachic rulings, customs and mussar concepts presented through all methods of Torah study (Pardes). Rabbi Moshe Meth is quoted extensively by the premier Achronim and Torah luminaries in the next centuries, including the Shl”a Hakadosh and Magen Avraham.
Rabbi Moshe Meth (circa 1540-1606) was Av Beis Din of the great Jewish cities of Belz, Apta and Premishla. He was of the prime disciples of the Maharshal and infused his sefarim with important customs that he personally witnessed in the home of his esteemed master. Rabbi Moshe was one of the leading scholars in his era and corresponded frequently with both the authors of the Bach and Mas’as Binyamin.
The title page verso boasts a beautiful poem by Rabbi Shabsai Sofer of Premishla, author of Siddur Rabbi Shabsai Sofer, praising the sefer and its eminent author.
