   Novellae on Shulhan Arukh and legal decisions. R. Moses b. Daniel Toledano (1724-1773) was a disciple of the brothers R. Hayyim and R. Jacob Toledano. From 1769 he was a member of the bet din of the MaHaRIT. He left many works on the Torah which his son-in-law R. Meir Toledano edited, summarized, and published as Melekhet ha-Kodesh (Leghorn, 1803).

The Toledanos are a family of rabbis and hakhamim which originated in Toledo, Spain. After the expulsion from Spain in 1492, the Toledanos were to be found in Safed, Salonika, and Morocco. According to a family tradition they arrived in Fez during the 16th century from Salonika, and from there went to MeknIs and became leaders of the community from the 16th century until the present day. They were prominent in the community in religious affairs, producing renowned rabbis and poets who enriched the literature of Moroccan Jewry with their works and greatly influenced the western communities, particularly those of MeknIs, SalM, Tangier, and even Gibraltar; in political affairs, producing men who served as ministers and counselors to kings and were entrusted with diplomatic missions; and in economic affairs, producing outstanding merchants who developed and maintained varied commercial relations with European countries which contributed to the economic progress of Morocco.
