Introductory Guide to the Jewish Wedding and the Laws of Family Purity

I am proud to present a new guide to the laws of marriage and family purity, entitled "Shoshanat Yaaqov: A Guide to the Jewish Wedding and Family Purity in Light of the Fundamentals of Jewish Thought."

In addition to practical halachic guidelines, Shoshanat Yaaqov presents a philosophical framework through which one can better appreciate the meaning and significance of these important laws.

Since it is not yet fully edited, I would very much appreciate your feedback, constructive criticism, etc.

You can download a PDF version of the work here.

Shabbat Shalom!

JIB Awards Nomination

It just came to my attention that my other blog, Vesom Sechel, has been nominated for "Best Torah Blog" on the JIB Awards Site (Group C).

I am honored to have been nominated, especially in view of the fact that my communal obligations have prevented me from posting on a regular basis for the past couple of months.

Of course, I plan to resume a more predictable posting schedule in the very near future.

Thank you to my readership for your kind support.
