This book is an authoritative Halachic compendium that will enhance every family's personal "Radiance of Shabbos."
From the Shulchan Aruch to our generation's great poskim, the author traces the Halachah as it applies in concrete terms to every Jew, at home or away. All sources are carefully footnoted and the interested reader is directed to further texts, where needed. Many of the conclusions - especially in such grey areas as candle-lighting in a hotel - are based on personal and written responsa to the author by Rabbi Moshe Feinstein zt"l, and Rabbi Chaim Pinchas Scheinberg shlita. In addition, this volume includes heretofore unpublished responsa from the revered Rabbi Feinstein, the greatest Halachic authority of our time.
The Radiance of Shabbos is a distinguished addition to an important new genre: the applied research of American born and trained scholars, who are fulfilling the needs of a burgeoning Torah community seeking clear, concise, authoritative guidance in actual practice. Laymen and scholar alike will welcome this extremely useful work.
The author, Rabbi Simcha Bunim Cohen, is a scion of a family that has filled major rabbinic posts for many generations. He is a senior Kollel fellow at Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, New Jersey.
