My Rabbinic Hebrew is very poor and my wife was asking for a book on Niddah and other womanly things so i was looking for a book according to the Egyptian tradition. Does this book cover such things?

  • No. Your link is not on that subject. What language does your wife speak and read normally? – Yaacov Deane Oct 26 '15 at 6:20
  • English. She has a Rebbetzin interested in going through the books with her and translating them with Hebrew. – Aaron Oct 26 '15 at 6:23
  • An excellent book in English is Family Purity by Rabbi Fishel Jacobs. Your wife and her Rebbetzin could go over it together. Here's a link: judaica.com/family-purity.html – Yaacov Deane Oct 26 '15 at 6:31
  • @YaacovDeane Is that book according to the Egyptian tradition? – Double AA Oct 26 '15 at 18:26
  • @DoubleAA i'm fairly certain there isn't going to be a specific book on the issue, i'll probably just have her go through the sections of Nehar Misrayim that fall under Niddah. But sometimes the halakhoth there aren't encompassing of everything, just what specific Egyptian things are done – Aaron Oct 26 '15 at 18:52

The book you linked to is about the laws of a rebellious wife. The book was authored in Egypt and printed in Jerusalem.

    Just to say it explicitly: that book is about dissolving broken marriages, and is not the one you want! – Shalom Oct 26 '15 at 10:40
