The present work is designed to meet the current need for a concise, contemporary compendium of the traditional laws in the basic areas of Jewish life. The laws are compiled from the Kitzur Shulhan Aruch, and augmented from the Shulhan Aruch and other traditional codes, such as Mishneh Torah, Hayye Adam, and Mishnah B'rurah. The material selected from these primary sources has been translated by the author and arranged in a logical and topical order, following that of the Kitzur Hulhan Aruch as closely as possible. The basic laws are supplemented by relevant halachich annotations, with particular regard to present-day problems and modern conditions, derived from and based on contemporary responsa by universally recognized helachic authorities. The section on sources and references directs the reader to the sources in the codes and responsa from which the basic laws and the individual rulings are drawn. This book is an authoritative source for study and for reference, which makes a knowledge of jewish laws more widely
