Shulchan Aruch
by Yosef Karo
The Shulchan Aruch (Hebrew: שולחן ערוך‎, literally: "Set Table") (also Shulhan Aruch or Shulchan Arukh) is a codification, or written manual, of halacha (Jewish law), composed by Rabbi Yosef Karo in the 16th century. Together with its commentaries, it is frequently considered the most authoritative compilation of halacha since the Talmud.
Excerpted from Shulchan Aruch on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
