Long accepted as the standard code of Jewish law and practice, the Shulhan Aruch was written by Rabbi Joseph Karo in 1565. Now, in an unprecedented restatement of Hoshen haMishpat, one of the four sections of the Shulhan Aruch, Rabbi Emanuel Quint brings fresh insight, modern scholarship, and succinct explication to this brilliant halachic work that will fascinate the educated layperson and advanced scholar alike. All 10 volumes are now available, completing a most valuable set in Halacha. A Restatement of Rabbinic Civil Law: Volume X Laws of Prohibition Against Damages of Another's Property, Direct and Indirect Damages, Informers, Laws of Assault, Obligation to a Fellow Jew, and Removal of Dangerous Conditions continues to open the brilliant halachic work of the Shulhan Aruch to the wider audience it deserves. The result is a comprehensive, well-organized body of rabbinic jurisprudence, available to the English reader for the first time. Beyond a translation, A Restatement of Rabbinic Civil Law provides the author's own commentary and also incorporates the four centuries of scholarship since the Shulhan Aruch was written, including commentaries and responsa literature. Ample footnotes help guide the reader every step of the way. The result is a comprehensive, well-organized body of rabbinic jurisprudence available to the English reader for the first time. If the Shulhan Aruch can be said to be the distilled essence of Jewish law, then A Restatement of Rabbinic Civil Law triumphs as a major judicial-literary landmark of its own.
