Mazal tov to Rabbi Ari Enkin on the publication of his new book, Ramat HaShulchan: Halachic Insights & Responsa, another volume in his series of “halakhic prose” (on his style, see here: link). Copies can only be purchased directly from him: e-mail link. Note that this book is mostly non-blog essays. Here is the book’s description:
As with the previous volumes, Ramat Hashulchan discusses over 100 contemporary halachic issues in a very unique and broad manner. The style is very clear, articulate, and engaging. There are over 2500 marei mekomot. It’s been called “An experience and education in Halacha like no other”.
Among the 100 topics are:

Semicha – Rabbinic Ordination
