Pele Yoetz is a book of Jewish Musar literature (Ethics) first published in Constantinople in 1824 by Rabbi Eliezer Papo.[1]

This book of musar (ethics) is not limited to abstract ethical precepts and esoteric concepts; but rather it encompasses all aspects and phases of day-to-day Jewish living, the ritual as well as the ethical, the mundane as well as the sublime. The book offers advice on human interrelationships such as between parent and child, husband and wife, employer and employee. It speaks to the heart as well as the mind. It goes beyond abstract ethics concepts and presents a guide to Jewish living.

Pele Yoetz is a classical moral treatise and compilation of essential Jewish concepts organized according to topics following the order of the Hebrew alphabet.
