Following the success of their first book, Wine, Whisky & Halachah, HaRav Shraga Kallus and Rabbi Avraham Chaim Slansky are pleased to present The Laws of Yichud.
HaRav Shraga Kallus is a renowned authority in halachah and has delivered thousands of shiurim on various topics. His shiurim are unique in that even the most complex of topics are made clear to allow for immediate practical application. This book is based on shiurim given in the “Second-Seder Kollel,” written by his close talmid, Rabbi Avraham Chaim Slansky.
Interactions between men and women occur in many different areas of life, and inevitably a myriad of questions arise, such as:
• Between which people is yichud forbidden?
• My spouse is in town, so is there any concern?
• What must I be aware of in order to avoid a yichud situation at the doctor’s office?
• Must a door always be left open?
In this book, the complicated and intricate laws of yichud are explained based on the original sources and the practical rulings of modern-day poskim. It is separated into two parts for ease of use:
Book One: Concise Laws of Yichud
The basic laws of yichud are presented as a clear and concise guide. Ideal for a quick review or for a decisive ruling, each chapter references where further explanation can be found in its counterpart in Book Two.
Book Two: Elucidated Laws of Yichud
Hilchos yichud is methodically arranged, providing further elucidation of the laws of yichud. This comprehensive guide, including all relevant background, gives the reader a complete grasp of hilchos yichud, facilitating real-life application to uncommon situations that may occur. Included are full-text citations of hundreds of sources and a wide range of practical examples, making it an excellent source for both reference and in-depth study.
Like HaRav Kallus’s shiurim, this book is both enjoyable and relevant to daily life. Its unique design brings refreshing clarity to a difficult subject.
