A Rabbinic Code ordered by Talmudic tractate, the Sepher HaTerumah has a particular focus upon the laws pertaining to Eretz Israel, The work has been included in much subsequent Halachic literature, among those who invoke its authority are Rabbis Isaac b. Moses (Or Zaru’a), Moses of Coucy (SeMa”G), Zedekiah Anav (Shibbolei HaLeket) and Aaron of Lunel (Orchoth Chaim). The Author, Baruch ben Isaac of Worms (late 12th-early 13th century) was a member of the Tosafist school that thrived in France, having studied under R. Isaac of Dampierre. For this reason, relatively few German authorities are cited by him in the Sepher HaTerumah, while citations of the master Tosafists Rabbi Samuel ben Meir (RaSHBa”M) and Rabbi Jacob of Ramrupt (Rabbeinu Tam) abound.
