The Living Hirschian Legacy

The Hirsch Chumash

For thousands of years, Sefer Tehillim, King David’s Book of Psalms, has expressed the emotional and spiritual yearnings that accompany us throughout life - on a deeply personal, and transcendent level.

Kitzur Hilchos Shabbos (English)

Sefer Kitzur Hilchos Shabbos was first written as a Hebrew textbook, when the author began teaching hilchos Shabbos at the Rika Breuers Teachers Seminary. The original paperback sefer soon grew into a handsome hardcover book, which sold out almost immediately. New editions were printed, and the popular Hebrew sefer has been selling steadily ever since. Schools and study groups use this sefer, and many families learn from it on a regular basis at their Shabbos table.

Now, for the first time, this sefer on the laws of Shabbos is available in the English language! This provides an even greater opportunity for the English-speaking public to learn the laws of Shabbos in a clear and pleasurable way.
