Laws and Customs of Rosh Hashanah-New Edition


Category: Tag:


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 Rosh Hashanah especially faces this challenge due to the ‎hundreds of customs that came in later generations and have not been recorded in the ‎Shulchan Aruch. 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 Elul and Rosh ‎Hashanah are not given their proper presence. This Sefer tackles all the above ‎deficiencies. A clear summary of the rulings of Shulchan Aruch Harav together with ‎hundreds of practical Q&A that were compiled from classical Halachic sources. All ‎this is compiled with an emphasis of the Chabad custom and informative footnotes ‎that lend the reader background information and other opinions voiced on the subject ‎matter. ‎
