Detailed Description:   

Classic commentary to the Orah Hayyim, Darkhei Moshe, to the Beit Yosef of R. Joseph Caro, notes and supplementary laws, mostly by Ashkenazi scholars, not given in the Beit Yosef. R. Isserles had begun to write a commentary to the Turim of R. Jacob b. Asher, but while he was engaged in this task the Beit Yosef was published. He then wrote his Darkhei Moshe ha-Arokh to Orah Hayyim (Fuerth, 1760) and Yoreh De'ah (Sulzbach, 1692). He later abridged it and it was published on all four parts of the Tur (Berlin, 1702–03) with the title of the Darkhei Moshe ha-Kazar. Isserles utilized the Darkhei Moshe as a basis for his glosses on the Shulhan Arukh, the Haggahot or Ha-Mappah. It contains explanations, supplements, additions, and includes the customs of the Ashkenazi scholars ignored by R. Caro. At times R. Isserles decided against the view of the Shulhan Arukh, ruling in conformity with R. Asher b. Jehiel and his son R. Jacob, rather than with R. Isaac Alfasi and Maimonides as does R. Caro. By spreading his Mappah ("tablecloth"), so to speak, over the Shulhan Arukh ("Prepared Table") - which had codified Sephardi practice - he in fact made that work acceptable to Ashkenazim as well as Sephardim. The Mappah was first published with the Shulhan Arukh in the Cracow edition of 1569–71.

 

Hebrew Description:

 

מטור אורח חיים חברו ... ר’ משה איסרלש ... ועדיין לא זכינו שיצא לאורו (ועוד נוסף עליו דברים ... חד מן קמיא אשר הגיה עליו משני עבריו ... שלא נודע שמו ... והעמדנו אותן בין שני חצאי לבנה) ...

זהו "דרכי משה הארוך" ואילו דרכי משה שנדפס בתוך ארבעה טורים אינו אלא קיצורו. עיין: אהרן וואלדען, שם הגדולים החדש, חלק שני, ד, סי' עה.

"לוח הטעות וחילופי נסחאות", "השמטות" ו"מהדורא בתרא" לספר זה נדפסו בתוך: ספר אורח מישור, שחיבר ... ר' יוחנן ... קרעמניצר, ברלין תפ"ג; זאלקאוו תרכ"א.
