Originaly the classic Shulchan Aruch was meant to be a handy guide to our Jewish law. But then a wealth of commentaries grew around it to elucidate the brief laws and apply them to further problems. Soon the Shulchan Aruch turned into a massive work that only the learned Rabbis and experts could master. while other sections of the Shulchan Aruch could be left to the Masters the section of Orach Chaim could not. It deals with the daily life of the jew year 'round. So the great pious sage Rabbi Meir Ha-Cohen -The Chofetz Chaim -prepared his commentary to let this vital work of sacred law (Shulchan Aruch) become accessible again to the observant jew in the form of The Mishnah Berurah.
