Halacha-Yomi is a translation of the "Kitzur Shulchan Aruch", Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried's classic compendium of Jewish Law from the late 19th Century CE. Our translation is primarily derived from that of Rabbi Eliyahu Touger, recently published by Moznaim Publishing Corporation. Readers are encouraged to purchase the book from their local bookstore or by calling Moznaim, (718) 438-7680.

It is important to note that the application of the principles of Jewish Law frequently depends upon the unique context to which they are applied; consequently, a specific ruling of 150 years ago will not necessarily be the accepted practice today. Furthermore, not all the rulings of Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried in his "Kitzur Shulchan Aruch" are accepted as definitive.

Please use this text for learning and developing a better understanding of the breadth of Jewish Law, but please do not rely upon it for "halacha le'ma'aseh," practical applications.

Rabbi Ari Lobel and Project Genesis have added footnotes which attempt to briefly explain the principles and reasoning behind the rulings, and which, in many instances, note differing opinions which have been accepted as the practical halacha (especially from the Mishna Berura, published in the early 20th Century CE by Rabbi Yisroel Mayer Kagan).
