The classic work on ethics and morals with Yiddish translation. Menorat Hamaor (“Candlestick of Light”), one of the most popular works of religious edification among the Jews in the Middle Ages. Written “for the ignorant and the learned, the foolish and the wise, the young and the old, for men and for women,” the work has enjoyed over 70 editions and printings (1st ed.
