Arukh ha-Shulchan · ערוך השולחן
by Yechiel Michel Epstein
Arukh ha-Shulchan (Hebrew: ערוך השולחן) is a chapter-by-chapter restatement of the Shulchan Aruch (the latter being the most influential codification of halakhah in the post-Talmudic era). Compiled and written by Rabbi Yechiel Michel Epstein (1829-1908), the work attempts to be a clear, organized summary of the sources for each chapter of the Shulchan Arukh and its commentaries, with special emphasis on the positions of the Jerusalem Talmud and Maimonides.
Excerpted from Arukh ha-Shulchan on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
