A GPS helps us navigate unknown highways, deal with the detours, and find the best way to get to where we want to go. Halachah is like that too: It shows us where to go, directs us to the most effective route – the path that Hashem has set out for each of us to follow.
Just as a GPS is only as good as the maps loaded into it, we can only follow the halachah if we’ve “loaded” ourselves with the often complex concepts that make up Torah law.
ArtScroll’s Halachah Series gives us those maps. Each of the more than fifty halachah titles are written by rabbanim who are experts in their fields. The books are comprehensive and clear, explaining halachic concepts and bringing practical examples of how they apply to modern life.
From now until April 27, all titles in the ArtScroll Halachah Series are available at an incredible savings of 30% off the list price.
The Halachah Series includes books on the laws of Shabbos and Yom Tov, kashrus, business and finance, medical halachah, proper speech, life cycle events, laws pertaining to women and to children and parents, and the popular Laws of Daily Living series.
Here’s a closer look at a few titles: Currently, three volumes of the Kleinman Edition of the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch have been released, and the final two in the series will be published during the course of the next year. This edition of Rav Shlomo Ganzfried’s classic work of halachah includes a fully vowelized Hebrew text, followed by a phrase by phrase translation and elucidation. It also includes rulings from the Mishneh Berurah and Rav Moshe Feinstein, whenever their rulings differed from those of the Kitzur.
Behind the shemiras halashon revolution, that changed the way we speak, are several works on the laws of proper speech, including the bestselling Chofetz Chaim: A Lesson a Day and A Daily Companion, and the recently released Positive Word Power and The Family Lesson a Day, all published in association with the Chofetz Chaim Heritage Foundation. With tens of thousands of copies in print, these daily readers have taught two generations the halachos of proper speech, offering real-life examples and inspirational pieces to help make these laws a part of our lives. As we travel the sometimes puzzling road of life, we must turn to our “Torah GPS” — the halachah that has defined us since we stood at Sinai.
