Weekly Freebies: Kitzur Yalkut Yosef

Print pagePDF pageEmail page

The Kitzur Shulchan Arukh (link) by R. Shlomo Ganzfried is a classic condensation of practical Jewish law as it was practiced in mid-18th century greater Hungary. It has been adapted a few times, including R. Gersion Appel’s Concise Code of Jewish Law. R. Yitzchak Yosef’s version based on the rulings of his father, R. Ovadiah Yosef, is titled Kitzur Shulchan Arukh Yalkut Yosef and is available (without footnotes) online for free: link

  1. The Yaklut Yosef Kitzur Shulchan Aruch is also available at http://www.yalkut.info/, though this one seems easier to search.

    The Yalkut Yosef Kitzur Shulchan Aruch isn’t really related to R’ Shlomo Ganzfried’s Kitzur Shulchan Aruch in content or depth. Rather, it’s all of the halachot in Yalkut Yosef from the big print at the top of the page with none of the footnotes. The halachot are divided according to simanim in the Shulchan Aruch, so there’s plenty of room for depth and detail, something that RSG’s Kitzur doesn’t lend itself to very well.
