Without him, we would be unable to eat fish.
Without him, many people would mistakenly be refraining from washing netilas yadayim on so-called “mezonos rolls.”
Without him, kashrus in America—and really, all over the world—would be a far cry from the advanced stage where it’s at today.
“Him,” of course, is Rav Yisroel Belsky zt”l—the venerated and brilliant American gadol, whose razor-sharp mind and huge heart were matched only by his tremendous love for Torah.
It’s been over two months since Rav Belsky’s petirah, and Klal Yisrael is still reeling from the blow. Our only comfort is by learning the Torah and psakim that Rav Belsky left behind for us—through this we are able to continue solidifying our connection with him, even after his passing.
Piskei Halachah of Rav Yisroel Belsky, compiled by Rav Belsky’s close talmid, Rabbi Moishe Dovid Lebovits, is a sefer in which you can imagine Rav Belsky speaking out each line on each page. This beautiful English book covers many topics in halachah, such as muktzah, toys and games on Shabbos, bedikas chametz, making a siyum, customs during Sefiras Ha’omer, and much more—all with Rav Belsky’s clear psakim for each halachah.
There are 54 concise chapters in the book, which makes it the perfect “learn-with-your-family” sefer for your Shabbos and Yom Tov table.
This sefer is a must-have, for all those with a true appreciation of halachah in general and of Rav Belsky’s noted psakim in particular!
