Dutch translation of the regulations or haskamot of the Dotar society, which were originally written in Portuguese between 1756 and 1825. Many of the well-known Jewish-Portuguese names in the history of Amsterdam (Sarfaty, Da Costa, Spinoza, Senior Coronel) can be found in this book.

Santa Companhia was founded in 1615 as Santa Companhia de Dotar Orphas e Donzellas. The aim of the society was to collect money that was to be allotted on the Sunday following Purim as a dowry for the orphan girls and poor young daughters of the Amsterdam Sephardic society.
