Description: A comprehensive halachic guide: Morning Routines, Preparations for Prayers, Tallis, Tefillin, The Berachos, Amen, Pesukei Dezimrah.
The word for Jewish law is halachah, which also means "walking." Halachah guides the Jew wherever he or she goes. And Rabbi Cohen's clear, user-friendly presentation is the perfect guide to halachah. For those desiring to probe the source material for the applications of halachah in this volume, Rabbi Cohen has provided thorough research notes in Hebrew with detailed explanations for each subject.
This first volume explores the correct application of Jewish law to common morning routines: rising; washing one's hands; getting dressed; use of the lavatory; Bircas HaTorah (the blessings before Torah study); activities prohibited before Shacharis; proper attire for prayer; environments unsuitable for prayer or Torah study; the proper way to recite a berachah and for saying Hashem's Name, donning tzitzis, tallis, and tefillin; bircas HaShachar (the morning blessings); reciting 100 berachos each day; saying Amen; and Pesukei deZimrah.
