An Introduction to the History and Sources of Jewish Law

The authority as the fundamental legal expert over the Ashkenazi or the German Jews was passed on to R. Asher b. Yehiel after R. Meir b. Barukh's death. Simultaneously, as R. Asher gained authority over the German Jews, a businessman tuned jurist and legal scholar named R. Solomon b. Adret took the same position, only he was to be in charge of the Iberian Jews. This chapter discusses how, during the period between the reign of these significant figures and the publication of Joseph Karo's work entitled Shulhan Arukh, both the Iberian Jewry and the German Jewry experienced dramatic changes and disturbances that brought about various developments and posed several challenges in Jewish Law. This chapter explores the developments in Jewish Law from 1300 to 1565.

Keywords:   German Jewry, Iberian Jewry, authority, Joseph Karo, Shulhan Arukh
