Meshullam dealing with the laws of marriage. The continuation was not published;
R. Ashkenazi was especially interested in the Sephardi prayer book. He assembled all the relevant rules and published: Beit Oved (1843), on prayers for week days; Beit Menuhah (1843), for the Sabbath; Beit Mo'ed, part 1 (Beit ha-Sho'evah (Leghorn, 1849)) for Sukkot and Simhat Torah. He died while the book was in process of publication, and as a result of his death the manuscript of the remaining three sections on the other festivals was lost.
