   Homilies and novellae on the weekly Torah portion by R. Shalom ben Nissim Avitzrur. The title page describes the discourses as desirable and comely, “sweeter than honey and the honeycomb” (Psalms 19:11). Those who read them will find them worthwhile and of “goodly words” (Genesis 49:21). It is built and founded on the works of early sages. R. Avitzrur is entitled it Netivot Shalom because, “Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace (netivot shalom)” (Proverbs 3:17). The title pagfe is dated, “When the Lord shall bring back the exile שבות (708 = 1948) of his people” (Psalms 15:7). The verso of the title page has a dedicatory box with the date to be filled in by the buyer. There are approbations from R. Joshua Berdogo, R. Moses Toledano, and R. Raphael Baruch Toledano; R. Matthaias Syriro, R. Aaron Bitcol, and R. Moses ibn Daniel; R. Joseph ben Attar, R. Hayyim Jekuthiel Berdogo, and R. Hayyim Raphael Attia; R. Moses Meir Hai Eliakim; and R. Isaac Abihatzeria. Three pages of names of individuals who sponsored publication follow, and then the text, in two columns in rabbinic type, encompassing all the weekly Torah readings.
