Daily Jewish Law
List owner: Yaakov Menken firstname.lastname@example.org Subscription address: email@example.com Purpose: Halacha-Yomi refers to "Daily Jewish Law," or more specifically to a cycle developed for studying the basics of Jewish Law over a six- to seven- year period, in small daily installments. Each daily installment represents 3 seifim, or paragraphs, of the Shulchan Aruch Orach Chayim with Mishna Brura - the standard Code of Jewish Law with the commentary of Rabbi Y. Kagan. Most of the material on this list comes from Rabbi Yosef Karo's Code of Jewish Law, entitled the Shulchan Aruch, or Set Table, with the commentary of Rabbi Moshe Isserles defining Ashkenazic practice. The first of the four sections of Rabbi Karo's work, subtitled "Orach Chayim", or the Way of Life, contains that which is most relevant to most Jews on a regular basis. Today, this material is usually studied with the comments of Rabbi Yisroel Mayer Kagen, entitled the "Mishna Brura", or Explained Teaching. The Halacha Yomis cycle involves studying three paragraphs of the Shulchan Aruch each day.
