It’s the sefer that’s found on hundreds, if not thousands, of Shabbos tables around the world. It’s the go-to sefer when you want to learn hilchos Shabbos—and the practical applications of those halachos—in a clear and concise way. It’s the hilchos Shabbos guide used by countless schools and study groups in the frum community. And now this bestselling Hebrew book is available in English, too!
Sefer Kitzur Hilchos Shabbos, by esteemed posek Rav Yaakov Yechezkel Posen, has become somewhat of a byword over the many years since its publication. Originating as a Hebrew textbook when the author began teaching hilchos Shabbos in Rika Breuers Teachers Seminary, the humble paperback sefer soon grew into a handsome hardcover book, and its popularity within frum circles grew along with it.
Back in 5732 (1972), the author showed his work to Rav Moshe Feinstein zt”l. Besides for giving his warm approbation to the sefer, Rav Moshe advised Rabbi Posen to translate the book into English. It took a while for Rabbi Posen to find the right person for the job, but finally, after many years, the English edition of Sefer Kitzur Hilchos Shabbos has been completed, and the book has just been released.
