Dear Friends and Supporters,
Shalom and blessings from Har Bracha! With joy and praise to Hashem, we are happy to announce the publication of the first two books in English of Rabbi Eliezer Melamed’s highly acknowledged series on Jewish law, “Peninei Halachah.” The Hebrew books have gained wide popularity in Israel, and are taught in schools, yeshivas, and homes throughout the country. Over 200,000 copies have been sold to date!
As a rabbi and teacher, Rabbi Melamed determines ‘halacha’ (Jewish law) on a regular basis for his students, the residents of his community ‘Har Bracha’, and the public in general. His ‘halachic’ rulings have been published for several years in various forums, and primarily, in the enterprise constituting the crowning glory of his writings – “Peninei Halacha.” This popular series of books, which has captured the hearts of countless readers, is written in a clear, concise, and modern language, and is part of Rabbi Melamed’s vision to familiarize all with the basics of Jewish law and faith.
The “Laws of Prayer” and “Laws of Pesach” are the first in the English series. In addition, we are in the process of translating the books into Spanish, French, and Russian – languages severely lacking in the Torah of Eretz Yisrael. This colossal project requires considerable funding. Therefore, we are inviting you, dear friends and supporters, to participate and become active partners in this important and worthy endeavor. Those interested in contributing to the publication of other books in the English series of “Peninei Halachah,” or would like to make a dedication in the honor or memory of friends or family, are invited to contact us at the address below.
Any comments or suggestions on how to improve the books for future editions will be greatly appreciated. We hope you find the books beneficial, and we thank you in advance for your support and assistance!
With Love of Israel,
