About this Item

Original Cloth. 8vo. [1], 132 pages. 22 cm. Kitsur Shulhan Arukh (Code of Jewish Law) , printed in Basle, Switzerland, ostensibly for Jewish refugees there. The Kitsur Shulhan Arukh by Solomon ben Joseph Ganzfried (1804–1886) , Hungarian rabbi and author. "His most famous work is the Kitsur [Abridged] Shulhan ‘arukh (1864) , a text that summarizes, in simple, straightforward language, the main practical religious commandments to be observed in everyday life. Ganzfried states in his introduction that his primary sources, in addition to Yosef Karo’s Shulhan ‘arukh itself, were the halakhic works of the rabbis Ya‘akov Lorbeerbaum of Lissa (Leszno) , Shneur Zalman of Liady, and Avraham Danzig, and whenever their opinions divided, he concurred with the majority ruling. The Kitsur Shulhan ‘arukh was very popular during Ganzfried’s lifetime; indeed, it was one of the most widely accepted halakhic books for the religious public. Dozens of editions were printed, and the book was translated more than once into English, Yiddish, French, German, and Hungarian. Various commentaries on the Kitsur were written as well—although Ganzfried had opposed this, as he wished to retain the concise format of his original version. " - YIVO Encyclopedia.
