The obligation of Mezuza requires a person to affix Mezuzot on the residence in which he lives. The Gemara describes this obligation as "Hobat Ha’dar" (literally, "an obligation of the resident"), which means that the Misva applies only to the resident. If a person purchases a property but it remains vacant for a period of time, it does not require…
 
Amidst his discussion of the laws regarding public fast days, the Shulhan Aruch (Orah Haim 576:4) writes that a community must observe a public fast when confronting a situation of "Mapolet," or collapsing buildings. The Shulhan Aruch defines "Mapolet" for the purposes of this Halacha as the collapse of walls or buildings that are situated on firm …
 
Many people rent homes for the summer, for either a month or two months, and the question often arises as to whether they must affix Mezuzot in the rented homes. The basic Halachic principle relevant to this issue is that one who rents a residence outside Eretz Yisrael is exempt from the obligation of Mezuza for the first thirty days. If he remains…
 
The Rama (Rabbi Moshe Isserles, Poland, 1525-1572), in his concluding remarks to the Orah Haim section of the Shulhan Aruch (Siman 697), addresses the observance of "Purim Katan" – the fourteenth day of Adar Rishon (the first month of Adar in a leap year). He cites one view that although Purim is observed in the second Adar (Adar Sheni), one must n…
 
The Shulhan Aruch (Orah Haim 139) writes that before one reads from the Torah, he must prepare the reading and review the text at least twice, preferably four times. He must prepare the reading so he will read it properly, with the proper tune, vowels and pronunciation. This applies even in communities with an appointed Ba’al Koreh (reader), as man…
 
The text of the Torah is divided into paragraphs, which are called Parashiyot. A Parasha is referred to as either "Petuha" or "Setuma," depending on the size of the empty space separating it from the next paragraph. Halacha forbids the one reading the Torah from beginning an Aliya within three verses of the beginning of a Parasha, or end an Aliya w…
 
The Halachot governing Minyan require that all ten men assemble together in the same room. The Shulhan Aruch (55:20) rules that someone standing outside the room of the Minyan may answer the Devarim SheBikdusha, such as Kadish and Barchu, even though he doesn’t count towards making the Minyan. This is on condition that there is no separation of gar…
 
The question is raised as to whether one may complete the recitation of Birkat Ha’Lebana if clouds suddenly covered the moon in the middle of the Beracha. Must one recite the Beracha again from the beginning when the moon is again revealed? The Magen Abraham (Rabbi Abraham Gombiner, Poland, 1637-1682) cited by the Mishna Berura rules that since he …
 
Through the centuries, there has been Halachic debate with regard to the Beracha of Hanoten La’Yaef Koach. While all agree that thanking Hashem for giving strength to the weary every morning is a praiseworthy idea, there have been divergent opinions as to whether it is proper to recite this Beracha. The Beracha is first mentioned by the Tur (Rabben…
 
On every Yom Tob, we take out two Sifreh Torah, and we read from the second Torah the Pesukim that describe that holiday’s special Musaf sacrifice. Likewise, when Rosh Hodesh falls in Shabbat, we take out a second Sefer Torah and read the Pesukim that speak about the Musaf sacrifice offered on Rosh Hodesh. The question arises, why do we not read ev…
