Aruch HaShulchan for DavkaWriter

  • Aruch HaShulchan for DavkaWriter

Product Description

The Aruch HaShulchan, the classic Halachic compendium of Jewish law written by Rabbi Yechiel Michal Epstein over 100 years ago, . The Aruch HaShulchan is unique among modern Halachic works in the breadth of his analysis of topics. As with the Mishnah Berurah, his work is written to accompany the chapters of the Shulchan Aruch. However, rather than just cite a source briefly, he traces the development of Halachic opinion, cites disputes among the Rishonim, and attempts to reconcile seeming contradictory opinions wherever possible. Nonetheless, the Aruch HaShulchan is not a work of pilpul but rather a vital source of halacha l'maaseh. The Aruch HaShulchan is a particularly useful book for intermediate and advanced students in day schools and yeshivot. The publication of the Aruch HaShulchan for DavkaWriter will bring this vital text to a worldwide audience in a newly accessible form.

The Aruch HaShulchan for DavkaWriter currently includes the Orach Chaim and Yoreh Deah sections – a total of five of the eight volumes of the Aruch Ha-Shulchan. The remaining volumes are under preparation and will be available at a later date.

About the Aruch HaShulchan:

The Aruch HaShulchan was written by Rabbi Yechiel Michal Epstein, the renowned Halachic authority (1829-1908), who lived in Novardok, Russia. The Aruch HaShulchan is based on the Shulchan Aruch and traces the origins of each law and custom to its source. Rabbi Epstein authored additional Halachic works, among them the Aruch HaShulchan He'Atid, which covers the sections on vows, agriculture, and ritual piety. Rabbi Epstein's son was Rabbi Baruch Epstein, author of the noted commentary on the Chumash, Torah Temimah.
