This book, the third of Dr. Meyer Nezrit's research and documentary project on the heritage of the Tafilalet / Sijilmassa communities, joins two of its predecessors which dealt with the entire work of philology and illuminated the history, customs, piyyutim, and sermons, and included annotated versions of Hebrew and Judeo-Arabic texts including Bar Mitzvah sermons, Passover Haggadah, Pirkei Avot, Tikkun Pesach (Tahir) and Haftarah for Tisha B'Av. This volume includes only customs: personal, seasonal and societal, including the status of the woman and the customs of divorce and inheritance. The book has four parts: introductory chapters, a list of all Sephardi customs, including those shared by other communities, the unique customs of the Tafilalet communities with sources, and a chapter that compares their customs to the other Moroccan communities. The book also reviews the sources of influence on the Tafilalet customs: customs of the inhabitants of Fez, customs of the Land of Israel, Kabbalistic customs, rulings of the Rama and local regulations.
