He was the author of an ethical work entitled "Sefer Ḥ asidim" (Book of the Pious), written in 1473 and published by Schriftsetzer, Warsaw, 1866. This book, known also under the title "Sefer ha-Maskil" (Book of the Wise), gives a brief description of Jewish piety as understood at that time, and contains some valuable contributions to the history of Jewish culture. The author often quotes the "Ḥ ayye ' Olam" of Isaac Ḥ asid and the works of Judah ha-Ḥ asid.
