new issue of kallah magazine - book review of BeYom Chasunaso
My wife has completed pulling together another issue of Kallah Magazine, which should be out right after Rosh haShana in 5T, Queens, Brooklyn, Baltimore, and now also Teaneck, but if you want a sneak preview see her post with a link to the .pdf file. I contributed a review of a new sefer, BeYom Chasunaso, by Rabbi Zev Cinamon, RY of Yeshiva Gedolah of West Hempstead. Instead of a simply listing what to do, R’ Cinamon discusses the conceptual underpinnings of halachos of the wedding, starting with an analysis of whether there is a mitzvah to get married and ending with details of sheva brachos. Even if you are familiar with the basic lomdus of these sugyos, a nice feature of the book is the many piskei halacha he cites from R’ Soloveitchik z”l and R’ Chait shlit”a of Yeshiva Bnei Torah in Far Rockaway (I know I have a few R’ Chait readers, so you will definitely be interested). For more information or to purchase a copy you can contact the Yeshiva Gedolah of W.H.
