«This edition of Pereyra’s work will certainly contribute to our knowledge of Amsterdam Jewry of those days. Pereyra’s reflections cast abundant light on the actual social and religious setting of that community. In addition it will be of value to students of the Spanish language of the exiles. Finally, the main lesson, amply demonstrated by Mechoulan, concerns the weight of Spanish Catholic influence on Jewish religiosity in that unique Jewry of seventeenth-century Amsterdam Sephardim» (Victor A. Mirelman, The Jewish Quarterly Review).
