One of the most beloved of the many books of musar published through the ages.

Written by Rabbi Eliezer Papo (1785-1826), it has gained immediate popularity when first published in Constantinople, 1824. This book of musar (ethics) is not limited to abstract ethical precepts and esoteric concepts; but rather it encompasses all aspects and phases of day-to-day Jewish living, the ritual as well as the ethical, the mundane as well as the sublime. Moreover, the Pele Yoetz, true to its title, is a wonderful advisor on all situations of human interrelationships such as between parent and child, husband and wife, employer and employee. Rabbi Papo is revealed here as a man of penetrating insight into human nature with all its weaknesses and faults, its virtues and potential for greatness. He speaks to the heart as well as mind; to simple folk as well as to learned elite. His book is permeated with love for all Jews.
