Description
   Only edition of this work on the laws and correct nusah of prayer by the Sephardic sage R. Jacob ben Solomon Rakah. The title-page states that the principle of His people is prayer for He is awesome in His doing (Psalms 66:5). It is dated with the verse yet with him also who is of a contrite and humble spirit (Isaiah 57:15). This small but comprehensive book begins with the laws of Tikkun Hatzot followed by the laws concerning arising in the morning, washing ones hands, and taking care of ones bodlily needs; kriah al a-mezzuzah in the morning; tallit and zizzit; preceding through the day concluding with the laws of evening prayers. A small but detailed and comprehensive work on prayer and related conduct.
