Description:
This work -- the first of Rav Zevin s halachic masterpieces to appear in English -- is a classic analysis of the reasoning underlying the laws of the Festivals. It delves its way through the ancient roots of these laws, and traces their growth as they branch forth in the course of centuries of halachic debate. In its original Hebrew, HaMoadim BaHalachah is the most widely-respected work of its kind written this century, as its twenty-five editions testify. Into the homes of scholars and laymen alike, it has brought the joy of participation in the profound and energetic give-and-take from which the Halachah emerges.

Like a colossus who spans the millennia, Rav Zevin raises his reader out of his curtained corner in the history of scholarship, and from his own vantage point shares with him a breathtaking panoramic view of the Halachah as it has flourished through the three grand historical stages -- the argumentation of the Talmudic period, the decision-making of the codifying period, and again the reasoning of the great minds of recent generations. Nor is the spellbound reader allowed to remain an idle spectator. Pointed out before his very eyes are the Toah academies of the centuries, and as he sees brain pitted against brain, argument challenged by argument, he identifies now with this scholar, now with that. Indeed, he is almost tempted to take sides ...

This translation is for the reader with the daring and determination to take up the challenge presented by this work, who is willing to tackle the thrust and parry of Talmudic reasoning. Such a reader will be hard put to find a more fascinating introduction to this discipline.
