    A new sefer published by Rabbi Shmuel Zajac, a Magid Shiur at the Yeshivah in Morristown, explains the complex topic of ne’emanus be’isurin—the reliability of different forms of evidence regarding the status of ritually forbidden matters. 

    The new sefer is the second installment in the series titled “Yesodei Hashulchan Vezikukei Orosov,” following the acclaimed first sefer regarding amira lenochri. In this series, the author, who is well known for his in-depth shiurim and articles, illuminates the Alter Rebbe’s famously deep and concise words in two ways. First, by explaining the foundations upon which the Alter Rebbe based his rulings in the Shulchan Aruch, “Yesodei Hashulchan,” and secondly, by uncovering the novel insights that can be gleaned from them “Zikukei Orosov.”

    The new sefer covers a few simanim from hilchos shechitah in the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch and expounds upon the many foundational concepts expressed in these halachos, such as rov, various chazakos, the reliability of a single witness, and more.

    Available now in Seforim stores, the new sefer is decorated with approbations from leading Rabbis and Halachic authorities in the US and Israel. Rabbi Asher Weiss, a renowned posek in Jerusalem writes, “The greatness and extraordinary depth of the Shulchan Aruch Harav is well known. . . . few scholars are successful at grasping this depth fully. I was therefore very pleased and impressed with how the author explains these complicated topics so thoroughly and logically.” In an especially enthusiastic approbation, Rabbi Meir Heisler, Rosh Yeshivah of Yeshivas Emek HaTalmud in Jerusalem, praises the Sefer as “an incredible innovation in our generation,” and adds his own scholarly comments.

    The Sefer is especially suitable for Yeshivah students, Kollel Yungerleit, and Rabbonim who wish to learn the halachos of ne’emanus beisurim from the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch in depth.

    The Sefer is available in Seforim stores and directly from the author at
