Mishnah Berurah

Mishnah Berurah

In writing the Mishnah Berurah, the foremost halachic work of the past century, the Chofetz Chaim's goal was to make practical Halachah available to every Jew, regardless of his level of scholarship. Now, the Ohr Olam Institute is perpetuating the Chofetz Chaim's vision by making this fundamental work available to the English-speaking Jewish public, so that scholars and laymen alike can learn practical Halachos that govern Jewish daily life.

The Ohr Olam Mishnah Berurah is a monumental, groundbreaking project that elucidates the Mishnah Berurah and Beiur Halachah with unprecedented clarity and precision.  State of-the-art images and comprehensive explanatory notes accompany the easily readable translation, making this edition of the Mishnah Berurah a pleasure to learn and a joy to own. An added feature of Ohr Olam Mishnah Berurah is the Contemporary Halachah Discussion section, which explores modern-day applications of the Halachos discussed in the Mishnah Berurah and presents the ruling of contemporary rabbinic authorities on these issues.

The Ohr Olam edition has translated every word of the Shulchan Aruch, Rema and the Mishnah Berurah in a crisp, clear and creatively accurate manner that has the learners' needs in mind, whether it is baalei battim, yeshiva graduates or skilled scholars.

In today’s day and age, English Gemaras and daily shiurim make deeper understanding of the Talmud Bavli accessible to Jews of all walks of life. However, in the area of practical Halachah many of our brethren who are limited, whether by time constraints or for lack of a higher Jewish education, make do with a superficial understanding of the rules that govern each aspect of their daily practices.
