The Traditional Jewish Law of Sale: Shulhan Arukh Hoshen Mishpat, Chapters 189-240, Translated and Annotated (Monographs of the Hebrew Union College Number 9)
ii, 332 pp. "The Shulchan Aruch (also Shulhan Aruch or Shulhan Arukh) is a codification, or written manual, of halacha (Jewish law), composed by Rabbi Yosef Karo in the 16th century. Together with its commentaries, it is frequently considered the most authoritative compilation of halacha since the Mishneh Torah or even the Talmud itself. Choshen Mishpat is a section of Rabbi Jacob ben Asher's compilation of halakha (Jewish law), Arba'ah Turim. This section treats aspects of Jewish law pertinent to finance, torts, legal procedure and loans and interest in Judaism. Later, Rabbi Yosef Karo modeled the framework of his own compilation of practical Jewish law, the Shulkhan Arukh after the Arba'ah Turim. Many later commentators used this framework, as well. Thus, Choshen Mishpat in common usage may refer to an area of halakha, non-specific to Rabbi Jacob ben Asher's compilation."Keywords: RELIGION JEWISH JUDAISM JUDAICA
