“It is not just a sefer. It is a movement. The sefer should be found in every home and every shul,” remarked Rav Feivel Cohen, author of Sefer Badei Hashulchan, regarding the new Sefer Parnassah K’Halacha.
Rav Cohen was among the rabbonim, roshei yeshiva and poskim who gathered on Motzoei Shabbos Parshas Terumah at Khal Shemen Lamincha in Lakewood for a melava malka to celebrate the publication of the sefer in both Lashon Kodesh and English.
The new sefer places the most pertinent halachos of Choshen Mishpat, monetary halacha, within the reach of every Yid.
Sefer Parnassah K’Halacha was published by Reb Duvi Honig of the Orthodox Jewish Chamber of Commerce and is now in seforim stores across the world. Each halacha is clearly and succinctly explained in terms understandable to every Yid, and various scenarios are cited for their practical application. No sefer of this sort has previously been published.
The rabbonim at the melava malka cited the vital nature of this sefer and how it promises to usher in a new era of awareness of and adherence to monetary halacha.
Rav Aryeh Malkiel Kotler remarked that the sefer fulfills the posuk of “V’eileh hamishpatim asher tosim lifneihem,” as it places crucial halachos in front of all of Klal Yisroel.
Other participants at the melava malka included Rav Yaakov Forchheimer, Rav Tzvi Herhs Portugal, Rav Shaul Simcha Friedman, Rav Shmuel Yosef Bittersfeld, Rav Ari Marburger, Rav Dovid Grossman, and Rav Yehoshua Grunwald.
Various dedications are still available for both the Lashon Kodesh and English editions and will appear in future volumes. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
