Description Information
   Broadside 500:350 mm., creased, usual age staining. Unrecorded - not in CD-EPI.
   The broadside warns against the punishments and tells the rewards for shemiras yesod. In the second paragraph R. Lichtenstein writes that one who keeps this principle properly will merit being able to support his family with honor and ease, and raise children nicely. One is responsible to act with all his strength to prevail over his yetzer in the days of his youth and not hearken to the advice of the wicked, not to associate with them, go to the places they go to, for they sport and conduct themselves as the maraglim. Also one must distance themselves from sports called ball and One must distance himself (herself) and not sit in the seat of the scorners (Psalms 1:1) those who waste time sporting with cards or spend their nights eating and drinking. One sin leads to another (everot girreet averot), leading to stealing money from their father to be a glutton, and a drunkard. (Deuteronomy 21:20), all of which leads to disrespect and vulgarity until all sins appear acceptable. The broadsheet continues enumerating further violations, inappropriate, and eventually immoral behavior as well as disregarding all mitzvot.
