  Code of Jewish Law

       R 236.4



Mishnah Berurah (English-Hebrew)

    R 236.5 HAC

The Mishnah Berurah (Hebrew: משנה ברורה‎ "Clarified Teaching") is a work of halakha (Jewish law) by Rabbi Yisrael Meir Kagan (Poland, 1838–1933), also colloquially known by the name of another of his books, Chofetz Chaim "Desirer of Life."

His Mishnah Berurah is a commentary on Orach Chayim, the first section of the Shulchan Aruch which deals with laws of prayer, synagogue, Shabbat and holidays, summarizing the opinions of the Acharonim (post-Medieval rabbinic authorities) on that work.

   Mishneh Torah

          R 236.2



The Mishneh Torah (literally Review of the Torah) by Moses Maimonides (the Rambam) is a guide to the entire system of Jewish Law

Sefer Igros Moshe

R 296.179 Fein

This monumental nine-volume set contains the collected letters of Rav Moshe Feinstein, zt"l, one of the greatest and most well-respected halachic authorities of the 20th century. These letters offered detailed responses to questions of halacha (Jewish law) that he had been asked. Studied by Jews around the world, these "responsa" letters (as they are known) offer a glimpse into the deep understanding of a master of Jewish law, Talmud and Tanach.
