  1. Headlines #2, Halachic debates of current events

    Headlines #2, Halachic debates of current events

    $10.50

    Halachic Debates of Current Events World events are catalysts for all sorts of change. Headlines 2: Halachic Debates of Current Events, a sequel to the highly acclaimed first volume of Headlines, is a halachic analysis of some of the most notable issues in current events. With its remarkable array of Torah sources, and including radio interviews with leading halachic experts, Dovid Lichtenstein’s book will fascinate both laymen and scholars interested in contemporary halachic issues. Indeed, this work is a testament to the timeless nature of Torah law in confronting even the most modern dilemmas.

    PRAISE FOR THE FIRST VOLUME OF HEADLINES:

    “Dazzling... The questions you discuss are extremely enlightening and stimulating... These are questions that engage thinking people, but rarely do the disputants delve into halachic sources... [This work shows] that the Torah speaks authoritatively to every age and every question.”

    — Rabbi Nosson Scherman, ARTSCROLL PUBLISHING

    “It is a great endeavor to show how Halacha addresses actual and practical matters, for this is the honor of Torah and the main purpose of Torah study.”

    — Rabbi Herschel Schachter, ROSH YESHIVA, RABBI ISAAC ELCHANAN THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY

    APPROBATIONS FOR THE AUTHOR’S MISHNA ACHARONA:

    “I was very happy to see selections of your new book... discussing contemporary issues that were not explicitly addressed by the earlier generations; it is beneficial to present the relevant sources... On a personal note, the sweet flavor of our learning together bechavrusa in Yeshivas Mir is still with me... May you continue to open new, pleasant vistas of Torah in future publications.”

    — Rabbi Raphael Shmuelevitz, YESHIVAS MIR YERUSHALAYIM, ISRAEL

    “The author, with much wisdom, succeeded both quantitatively and qualitatively in setting forth all [relevant] opinions.”

    — Rabbi Zalman Nehemia Goldberg, JERUSALEM, ISRAEL

    “It is obvious from this work that he exerted much effort to provide us with a thorough work.”

    — Rabbi J. J. Neuwirth, AUTHOR OF SHEMIRAS SHABBOS K’HILCHASA

    “Rabbi Dovid Lichtenstein shlit”a, with much effort, has the merit of having created a beautiful and proper work.”

    — Rabbi Azriel Auerbach, JERUSALEM, ISRAEL Learn More

  2. Kitzur Hilchos Yom Tov, An English translation of the immensely popular sefer on the laws of Yom Tov

    Kitzur Hilchos Yom Tov, An English translation of the immensely popular sefer on the laws of Yom Tov

    $21.95

    As in Hilchos Shabbos, in Hilchos Yom Tov we have followed the "derech kitzora" (path of brevity), and have concentrated primarily on acquainting the reader with the main principles of the laws of Yom Tov. In addition, we have presented a number of practical applications. Thus, one will be equipped to ask one's Rav for further guidance after studying this sefer.

    In Hilchos Shabbos we organized the sefer in accordance with the sequence used by the Chayei Adam in his sefer Zichru Toras Moshe. Likewise, in Hilchos Yom Tov as well, we have organized the sefer according to the arrangement of the Chayei Adam, which follows the order of the thirty-nine Melachos. Thus, each chapter in this sefer parallels the corresponding chapter in Kitzur Hilchos Shabbos.

    The advantage to this system is that one who has already studied the laws of Shabbos from our sefer can now easily find the halachos of Yom Tov relevant to that subject in the same chapter as that topic is discussed in Hilchos Shabbos. Moreover, within each chapter, one can frequently follow the order of the numbers assigned to each subtopic, and thereby see how the halacha in regard to Yom Tov differs from Shabbos. Learn More

  3. Pidyon HaBen Midarkai Hapidyon, A Halachic Guide and Weekly Parshah Reader

    Pidyon HaBen Midarkai Hapidyon, A Halachic Guide and Weekly Parshah Reader

    $23.75

    Why do we redeem our firstborn sons? Who is exempt from this mitzvah? What is the significance of using jewelry and garlic at a Pidyon Haben? Can a father choose not to redeem his son? How does an adult redeem himself? Will the firstborn once again serve in the Beis Hamikdash?

    In Midarkei Hapidyon, you will find the answers to these questions and more:

    Find out where Pidyon Haben is alluded to in the Torah and why Yitzchak Avinu didn't have a Pidyon Haben. Read about the value of the five shekalim needed to redeem a firstborn son and about the history of money and coinage. Learn the halachos of Pidyon Haben, including how one calculates the correct time and day for a pidyon and whether a Kohen sits or stands during the ceremony.

    This sefer was written as a guide for fathers, Kohanim, and anyone interested in learning about this unique mitzvah. A beautiful photo section provides a visual presentation of Pidyon Haben, and the parshah section teaches about the significance of a bechor and his connection to the weekly parshah. Learn More

  5. Healing in Halachah

    Healing in Halachah

    $21.00

    The questions start with 'What is permissible or not on Shabbos' but don't end there. This incredible work - the fruit of years of specialization in the area by Rabbi Micah Cohn - cover areas such as Shabbos, Yom Tov, endangering oneself to help others, shidduchim, pregnancy and birth, end of life issues, and the under-explored but fascinating and crucial subject of mental health.

    In his encyclopedic and engaging style, Rabbi Cohn finds sources, parallels and examples from the length and breadth of Jewish life and scholarship to illustrate contemporary questions and issues. Though extremely practical, it is not a practical guide to medical halachah. It is a unique, thought provoking overview and appreciation of these complex issues. Of great interest to patients, caregivers, and medical professionals, this valuable work will be an indispensable resource to all fascinated about Torah guidance in the realms of medicine and mental health.

    Approbations:

    "This work is written with brilliance and clarity and will be a great asset to clarify serious issues in the field of medicine which today there is a great need for."

    Rabbi Shmuel Kaminetsky, Rosh Yeshiva, Talmudic Academy of Philadelphia

    "The author did a great thing by giving direction in these serious areas so they shouldn't be left to each individual to decide on their own. It is also a great asset to Torah scholars in understanding the intricacies of these questions and relevant halachic sources to properly render halachic decisions on these matters."

    Rabbi Yaakov Efrayim Forcheimer, Senior Poseik, Beth Medrash Govoha Learn More
