  2. The Laws & Customs of the Three Weeks

    The Laws & Customs of the Three Weeks

    $15.00

    The study of Shulchan Aruch at times is very challenging in terms of clarifying the final stance of the learned subject. This especially applies in instances that many cases and opinions exist within a given topic. In addition, throughout the generations hundreds of practical questions on the laws in Shulchan Aruch arose. Getting a proper grasp on the laws of The Three Weeks especially faces this challenge due to the complexity of the cases and the range of opinions. Even amongst the currently available English literature, the opinion of the greatest of the Achronim, the Shulchan Aruch Harav, is many times omitted or not given its proper presence. Likewise, the Chabad custom related to The Three Weeks is not given their proper presence. This Sefer tackles all the above deficiencies. A clear summary of the rulings of the Shulchan Aruch and, where applicable, Shulchan Aruch Harav and Chabad custom supplemented with the opinions of the Mishneh Berurah and Kaf Hachaim. This is accompanied with hundreds of practical Q&A that were compiled from classical Halachic sources. All this is compiled with informative footnotes that lend the reader background information and other opinions voiced on the subject matter. Learn More
  3. Life or Death, Facing End-of-Life Issues in the Modern World

    Life or Death, Facing End-of-Life Issues in the Modern World

    $4.75

    Bubby is in the hospital being fed intravenously. The doctors insist that we stop feeding her since there is "no hope", she has no "quality of life", and resources are being "wasted" on her. Are they right? What should we do?

    This is only one example of actual cases that are happening more and more often around the world. Often basing themselves on "quality of life" (and the desire to save hospitals money), many in the medical establishment and society as a whole are pushing families to terminate treatment of their ailing loves ones. Confused, alone, and well-intentioned, many Jewish families do not feel they have the clarity or knowledge to stand up to the pressure.

    Life or Death is a much-needed response to society's changing values. In this short, easy to read, yet powerful volume, readers will gain clarity and focus on the Torah's views about end-of-life issues - and gain motivation and direction about what each of us can and should do to save life.

    Wine, Whisky, & Halachah, A Halachic Overview to the Laws of Wine and Whisky, including scotch whisky matured in Sherry casks

    $19.00

    HaRav Shraga Kallus has gained renown as an authority in Halacha from the thousands of Shiurim he has delivered. His Shiurim cover all areas of Halacha, in which the most complicated of topics are made clear, with instant application to everyday life. This book is based on the Shiurim given in the "Second Seder Kollel", and now they take on the form of a written work, by his close talmid,RABBI AVRAHAM CHAIM SLANSKY.

    In this work, the extensive and at times complicated laws of Yayin Nesech, wine affected by a non-Jew, are explained; from the original sources, to the practical rulings in real-life cases. Wine is integral to many functions of Jewish life, and inevitable results in a myriad of questions.

     

    • After the waiter poured me a cup of wine, I realized the bottle I ordered was non mevushal.
    • The 'cleaning help' moved the wine, now what?
    • I'm hosting a Kiruv event, what if a participant pours himself a glass of wine?
    • What is the story with Scotch in Sherry Casks?!

     

    These are just some of the issues addressed, in regard to a topic that both its stringencies and its leniencies are widely unknown. This book is reminiscent of the Shiurim themselves, enjoyable to 'listen to' and relevant to daily life. Its ease of use, with original sources quoted, and most importantly in utmost clarity, brings refreshing understanding to even difficult concepts. This combination makes this work accessible to the layman, as well as a decisive work for the accomplished scholar.

    The book includes an innovative separate section detailing the potential issues of Scotch Whisky matured in Sherry Casks. It features alphabetical listing of over two hundred and fifty Scotch Whiskies and their Halachic rulings, with color pictures for easy reference - a first of its kind! Learn More
