A Halachic Guide to the Mitzvos That Are Dependent on Eretz Yisrael for the Traveler, Newcomer, and Resident By Rabbi Tzvi Teichman (182 Pages)Publisher: Feldheim
Is there relevance to the sanctity of the Temple Mount? Must we still mourn the destruction of Jerusalem and the cities of Yehudah? Are the daily prayers different in Eretz Yisrael? Who must observe two days of Yom Tov? How does one fulfill the mitzvos of Terumos, Ma'asros and Shemittah nowadays? Which halachos and customs are unique to Eretz Yisrael? For the traveler, newcomer, recent immigrant, or students in Eretz Yisrael, an entire array of mitzvos which he or she was never before able to observe, suddenly becomes relevant and imperative. Our joy in fulfilling the Torah's commandments increases with the newfound opportunity to observe those that pertain only in the Holy Land; terumos, ma'asros and shemittah, the mitzvos relating to Har Ha-Bayis (the Temple Mount) and the Kosel (the Western Wall), and more. In this volume, noted educator Rabbi Tzvi Teichman presents a guide to the different halachos and focuses on the issues most commonly confronted in the "desirable, beautiful land"
