  • Halacha Yomis

    Rabbi Yaakov Luban and Rabbi Eli Gersten

    Shortly before the petirah in 2016 of Rabbi Chaim Yisroel Belsky zt"l, a renowned halachic authority and one of the senior poskim of the Orthodox Union Kosher division, the OU began a daily halacha email in his merit, containing one halacha each day composed by a team of OU rabbis. After Rav Belsky s passing, the highly popular Halacha Yomis email has continued in his memory, sponsored by Gerald and Karin Feldhamer. This Halacha Yomis volume contains a wide selection of entries from the Halacha Yomis email series, consisting of 354 halachos, one for each day of the Hebrew calendar year. With each halacha presented in a clear, succinct and highly readable fashion, Halacha Yomis strikes the balance between accessibility to beginners and examination of laws that are not well-known even to advanced students. As attested to by the thousands of subscribers who have been reading and enjoying the email version of this halacha series for years, Halacha Yomis is a worthy companion to the study and observance of halacha in our times

  • Roni Akarah

    Why are some couples childless while others are blessed with children? What can a childless couple do to merit children? What is the Torah perspective on childlessness?

    These questions are not new; they date back to the time of our forefathers. Our Sages and later Rabbinic sources discuss these painful issues, providing insight, guidance, and practical advice. Rabbi Yaakov Hillel, Rosh Yeshivah of Ahavat Shalom in Jerusalem and the author of many works in Halachah and Kabbalah, presents and explains the teachings of our Sages and great Torah authorities, along with Halachic guidelines relevant to the childless. He brings these couples hope and encouragement, while helping them come to grips with the possibility that the prayers of some may remain unanswered. A comprehensive anthology of prayers and Torah verses is included for the benefit of both childless and expectant couples.

  • Rabbinic Authority Vol.3

    Volume 3

    A. Yehuda Warburg

    In the third volume of his groundbreaking series on rabbinic authority in English, Rabbi Warburg discusses the ramifications of a Jewish divorce. In this well-composed monograph, Rabbi Warburg primarily focuses on the case of the modern day agunah, a wife who is unable to get divorced due to her husband’s recalcitrance. He addresses the various techniques, such as obligating the giving of a get (Jewish divorce document), finding relief for an agunah who signed an exploitative agreement, and listing different avenues to void a marriage (bitul kiddushin) used by the rabbinical court. This issue is of some controversy in the Jewish community, and there is heated debate about it. Learn More
