Today, 550 years ago, in the year 1470, the sefer ‘Leket Yosher’ on Orach Chayim, was finalized in Mestre, Italy.
One of the most fascinating sefarim, which is, as interesting from an historic point of view, as it is from a halachic one, is the sefer Leket Yosher. It was authored by Rabbi Yosef ben Moshe of Mestre, a disciple of the Terumas HaDeshen.
Mestre, is a city in the Municipality of Venice, in those days it was part of the Republic of Venice.
The sefer is a must, for anyone who has a liking for halacha and history. It has recently been reprinted by Machon Yerushalayim.
