Catalogue Note

The Arba'ah Turim ("Four Rows", from the four rows of gems on the breastplate of the High Priest) was the major work of Jacob ben Asher of Toledo (ca. 1270–1340). Using the code of Alfasi as a starting point, Jacob also refers to Maimonides' Mishne Torah as well as to the Ashkenazi traditions contained in Tosafist literature. This work became the standard summary of halakhic law and custom, and was frequently reprinted through the sixteenth century, both in full editions and in individual editions of each of its four parts. These volumes comprise the second edition.
