Asher had eight sons, the most prominent of whom were Judah and ((Old Testament) son of Isaac; brother of Esau; father of the twelve patriarchs of Israel; Jacob wrestled with God and forced God to bless him, so God gave Jacob the new name of Israel (meaning `one who has been strong against God')) Jacob.

Hence Karo took the halakhot of Rabbi Isaac Alfasi (the Rif), Maimonides, and Asher ben Jehiel (the Rosh) as his standards, accepting as authoritative the opinion of two of the three, except in cases where most of the ancient authorities were against them.
As such, he is beloved of God, and preferable to the one who rules from a code but does not know the reason for the ruling; such a one walks like a blind person.

 Hazzan
During the early medieval era, the duties of reading from the Torah and of reciting the prayers were included, as a rule, among the functions of the Hazzan.
The blowing of the shofar was also one of his duties, as may be seen from a responsum of Rabbi Solomon ben Adret (No. 300).
In Spain, however, even at the beginning of the fourteenth century, Jews of the better families seem no longer to have adopted this calling, and the position of the hazzan in Spain was a source of surprise and grief to the German Asher ben Jehiel.

Jehiel's idea that today the commandment is to write Pentateuchs, Mishnahs and Talmuds, and not specifically Torah scrolls.
Jehiel, that writing a Torah scroll primarily serves Torah scholars, is the source of the view that identifies the Torah with those who study it, that is to say, those who study the Torah are, as it were, Torah scrolls themselves.

 Arba'ah Turim by Rabbi Jacob ben Asher
Alfasi's views were compared with those of Maimonides, as well as to the French and German traditions that were contained in the Tosafot literature.
The comparison of the northern European and Spanish legal traditions had been pioneered by Rabbi Jacob's German-born father, Rabbi Asher ben Jehiel (the "Rosh").
The influence of the Arba'ah Turim is thus perceptible in its integration of the Franco-German and Spanish legal traditions, as well as in its fourfold structure, which was later adopted by Rabbi Joseph Caro's Shulhan 'Arukh, and remains the most widely used structure for the organization of law codes and responsa.
