More than two hundred years ago, Rabbi Avraham Danzig was asked by European Torah authorities to produce a work which would summarize all the laws in the Yoreh Deah section of the "Shulchan Aruch." The result - Sefer Chochmas Adam - has become a modern classic. To this day, it remains the only published guide to provide a complete, yet succinct, review of these important halachos. "Sefer Chochmas Adam" was written in consultation with two of the greatest Torah scholars of the time - Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin and Rabbi Yaakov of Lisa (the Chavos Da'as). Reportedly, even the Chasam Sofer instructed his sons when he had to make a halachic decision and he couldn't refer to the Shulchan Aruch, he could rule in accordance with the Chochmas Adam. "Sefer Chochmas Adam on Hilchos Niddah" features: A newly revised and uniquely formatted edition of the original Hebrew text of "Sefer Chochmas Adam". A full and lucid English translation of the Hebrew text. A comprehensive English commentary with extensive background materials and explanation of the text, plus halachic decisions of contemporary authorities. Helpful introductions and appendices.
