    A new English Sefer has been released on the Laws and Customs of Rosh Hashanah by the prolific author Rabbi Yaakov Goldstein. Rabbi Goldstein is the author of the acclaimed Semicha and Shabbos Aid series as well as the Sefer “Awaking like a Jew” which covers the laws of morning conduct from the Shulchan Aruch Harav.

    The new Sefer “The Laws and Customs of Rosh Hashanah” is part a series of practical Sefarim covering the Shulchan Aruch Harav. The Sefer is a thorough summary of the laws found in Shulchan Aruch Chapters 581-603. The rulings follow the Shulchan Aruch Harav with an emphasis on the practical Chabad Minhagim. As his previous Sefarim, the Sefer also contains a wealth of fascinating footnotes that gives the reader great background knowledge, useful and interesting information, and a glimpse of opinions held by other Poskim, such as the Michaber and Mishneh Berurah. Hundreds of practical Q&A are also included together with insights from Chassidus and Kabala! Haskamas were assigned to the book by leading Chabad Rabbanim.

    The purpose of the Sefer

    The study of Shulchan Aruch at times is very challenging in terms of clarifying the final stance of the learned subject. This especially applies in instances that many cases and opinions exist within a given topic. In addition, throughout the generations hundreds of practical questions on the laws in Shulchan Aruch arose. Getting a proper grasp on the laws of Rosh Hashanah especially faces this challenge due to the hundreds of customs that came in later generations and have not been recorded in the Shulchan Aruch.

    Even amongst the currently available English literature, the opinion of the greatest of the Achronim, the Shulchan Aruch Harav, is many times omitted or not given its proper presence. Likewise the Chabad custom related to Elul and Rosh Hashanah are not given their proper presence. This Sefer tackles all the above deficiencies. A clear summary of the rulings of Shulchan Aruch Harav together with hundreds of practical Q&A that were compiled from classical Halachic sources. All this is compiled with an emphasis of the Chabad custom and informative footnotes that lend the reader background information and other opinions voiced on the subject matter.

    It covers questions such as:

    What is the source for Ledavid Hashem Ori and why is it said?

    Do the listeners of the Kiddush say Shehechiyanu prior to eating the new fruit?

    When do we eat the Rimon, the first or second night?

    Who says the Bracha on Mivtzaim when blowing Shofar?

    What is the meaning of the Musaf prayer and its long blessings?

    Must one mention his vows during Hataras Nedarim and are they revoked if he does not do so?

    What did the Rebbe Rayatz say to do the night before Rosh Hashanah?

    Can one hear Shofar inside a basement shul?

    Are we to cry during Davening and why?

    May a man immerse in a Mikveh with a filter?
