Fundamental sefer on prayers and Jewish customs
Commentary on prayers and blessings; versions and customs of prayer; and laws of prayers and blessings by Rabbi David Avudraham.
Sefer Avudraham is the foundational work on the customs and sources of prayers; formula of prayers; and laws of prayers and blessings. “The majority of customs of prayers and blessings are built on his sefer” (Noda B’Yehuda in his approbation to the Prague, 1784 edition).
Rabbi David Avudraham was born in Seville, Spain, and is thought to be a disciple of Rabbeinu Yaakov Baal Haturim. In the chapter on calculating the calendar, and at the end of the sefer, the Avudraham attests that he authored this sefer in the year 1340.
