Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By Eliyahu on July 30, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Fascinating, but suffers somewhat from being based on rabbinical documents -- unfortunately, the only available source material. The result is a narrow view of life in the mellah, biased towards officialdom.
