   Ethical and halakhic work reflecting the customs of the Jews of Djerba by R. Shalom Daniel Judah ben Moses Kohen (1835-1925). The title page describes Berit Shalom as being ethics and denim in the order of the Shulhan Arukh Orah Hayyim in a clear and easy language in order to be of maximum benefit. It was brought to press by the author’s grandson who describes R. Shalom Daniel the book as the work of a righteous man “the son of a brave man,of Kabzeel” (II Samuel 23:20). He adds that he hopes Berit Shalom will “find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man” (Proverbs 3:4) for the lips of the righteous speak from the grave. There is an approbation from R. Joseph Bokhritz , R. David ha-Kohen Jonathon, R. Maclif Aydan, and R. Rahamim Havitah ha-Kohen, all of Djerba. The text covers such subjects as Yesod ha-Torah, rising in the morning, netillat yadayim, morning blessings, zizit, sefer Torah, synagogue, Minhah, Shabbat, Rosh Hodesh, festivals, teshuvah, defeating the yetzer ha-ra, reproof, and concludes with the order of pidyon ha-ben. There are insights from the Zohar and cautions such as if one kisses a child wearing soiled garments one should not kiss a Sefer Torah. An unusual and interesting halakhic work.
