Summary "This work explains the jurisprudence and methodology of the last great restatement of Jewish law written, the Arukh Hashulhan, by Rabbi Yeheil Michel Epstein. It will help those interested in exploring Jewish law understand how halakha was codified, decodified and then recodified in the beginning of the Twentieth Century. It compares the two great codes of Jewish law written then - the Arukh Hashulhan and the Mishna Berura - and allows the reader to better understand modern Jewish Law"-- Provided by publisher.
