There is so much to know as a Jew—what, why, where, when, how? Shulchan Aruch, the Code of Jewish Law, is our indispensable companion, our guide to Jewish life. But where does one start learning the Code of Jewish Law?

Rabbi Avraham Zajac has been giving classes on Shulchan Aruch Harav on for several years now. Starting Sunday, we’ll be sending out another 5-minute class every weekday via WhatsApp.

This project is dedicated in memory of our dear partner,Rabbi Yonah (ben R’ Meir) Avtzon, director of SIE (Sichos in English), who passed away this month at age 61. One of Rabbi Avtzon’s most recent (and ambitious) accomplishments was publishing Shulchan Aruch Harav with an English translation and commentary. Indeed, together with the video class, you will receive the text in Hebrew and English, courtesy of our dear friends at SIE.

Here’s how to join: WhatsApp message the word HALACHA to +1-570-543-2125, save our number to your contacts, and get ready to learn!

May the Torah studied through this project bring merit to the soul of this special individual for whom this translation was a labor of love.
