A Free Sample? – Absolutely! ArtScroll wants you to experience the richness and excitement of a major new undertaking releasing Sept. 15: The Kleinman Edition of the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch. The “Kitzur” — Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried’s masterpiece — has been a staple in the study of practical halachah since 1864. This new edition features a crisp, clear, and fully vowelized Hebrew text, with a phrase-by-phrase translation and elucidation rendered in the familiar and popular style of the Schottenstein Edition of the Talmud, the Sapirstein Edition of Rashi’s Commentary on the Torah and the ArtScroll Ramban. Based on the Lemberg edition of 1884, the author’s last updated version, the Kleinman Edition also includes relevant rulings from the Mishnah Berurah and the Igros Moshe. Volume One covers Chapters 1-34 of the Laws of Daily Living. ArtScroll has published a free sampler of the Kleinman Edition of the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch, excerpted from Chapter 18 – the Laws of Shemoneh Esrei. You will find the sampler wherever ArtScroll books are sold or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com . Your can also download your free copy by clicking HERE . The dedicators of this exciting new project are Elly and Brochie Kleinman, who also dedicated the popular Daily Dose of Torah series.

Jerusalem Talmud Progress Report – Work on the Schottenstein Jerusalem Talmud progresses with the release last week of Succah, in one volume in the English edition, and Berachos 2 in the Hebrew edition. Never in Jewish history has there been such a clear translation and explanation of the terse and often cryptic language of Yerushalmi. Shrouded in obscurity for over 1600 years and studied only by the greatest Torah scholars, today this Torah treasure is available to a new generation – and now it can be part of your own personal Torah library.
