   Compilation of Jewish laws of daily living. Assa states in the introduction that he wrote the work to counteract the ignorance among the people. The people, he writes, spend their time in gambling, gossip in the winter, and walking the gardens in the summer. Books are not used and they don't know the difference between a Pentateuch and a prayerbook!
