The “Halacha Yomit
” website was established in the year 2005 (5765). The goal of the Halacha Yomit team is to spread Torah knowledge, specializing in a broad range of Halachic topics. Extensive emphasis is placed on clarification of Halachic sources and explanation of how to rule on Torah law. All this is done in order for all to know that our Torah is a guide for life and there is no such thing as a Halachic problem that doesn’t have a solution that is written in the works of the earlier or later Poskim, whose words we drink with thirst. Thanks to Hashem Yitbarach, we have merited that as of yet thousands of people have joined “Halacha Yomit
” to learn on a daily basis, as well as those who visit the site from time to time to take advantage of its vast Halachic treasury.
All the Halachot on this site are written based on the rulings of our leader, glory of the generation, Hagaon Harav Ovadia Yosef Shlit”a
, who is considered to be the generation’s most accepted and reliable Posek (Halachic authority) based on the testimonies of the greatest Rabbis of the previous generation including Hageonim Harav Ezra Attia, Harav Mordechai Sharabi, Harav Efraim Hakohen, and many others. Part of the Halachot on this site are based on the writings of Maran Harav Shlit”a in his precious works, and where he does not explain the issue himself, the Halacha is based on the rulings of Maran Hashulcan Aruch whose every ruling we follow, in addition to following the majority of Poskim, as is the usual practice of Maran Harav Shlit”a. In many instances we have personally asked Maran Harav Shlit”a to render direct rulings regarding certain Halachot published on this site, and we have quoted them in his name accordingly.
The Halachot on this site cover all aspects of Jewish life, ranging from the laws of Shabbat to issues pertaining to the “Choshen Mishpat” section of the Shulchan Aruch (monetary laws). One who studies the Halachot on this site on a daily basis can, within a short time, gain a broad scope of Torah knowledge in all areas of life. As of now, this website deals with only Halachic issues, however, we are planning to add insights on the weekly Parasha and even more, in the near future.
The Halachot on this website are written by the grandson of Maran Harav Shlit”a, Rabbi Yaakov Sasson
, member of the prestigious Bet Midrash Yechave Da’at in Jerusalem.
The English translation for this website is provided by Rabbi Meir Gavriel Elbaz
, an alumnus of the prominent Mirrer Yeshiva in Brooklyn. He is currently pursuing his rabbinical studies in Jerusalem alongside Rabbi Yaakov Sasson
in Bet Midrash Yechave Da’at.
