This category contains scanned page images in DjVu format of the halakhic code Arukh Ha-Shulhan by Rabbi Yechiel Michel Epstein (יחיאל מיכל הלוי אפשטיין), a restatement of the Shulhan Arukh published 1884-1893, and other works by the author.

These files may be viewed using the DjVu Browser Plug-in for Windows/Mac or DjVuLibre (Linux).

Technical information[edit]

Large scanned images in PDF format, each file containing an entire volume of the work, can be found at For the Wikimedia Commons, these PDF full-volumes have been subdivided and converted to DjVu format for use at the Hebrew Wikisource (Hebrew Arukh Hashulhan text project here). To add further material, division of the full-volume PDF files can be done using PDF Split and Merge. Resultant files should be kept up 10M (such that each full volume is divided into about 6 files). Conversion of the smaller PDF files to DjVu can be done using the DjVu Any2DjVu Server. See also Help:Creating a DjVu file.

Levush on the missing parts of Aruch ha-Shulhan[edit]

Parts of the work Arukh ha-Shulchan in Yoreh Deah and Even ha-Ezer are lost or missing in the original printed edition:

  • Hilkhot Avodah Zarah (Yoreh Deah 123-182).
  • Hilkhot Nedarim (Yoreh Deah 202-239). This was recovered and finally published in 1992.
  • Hilkhot Maaserot (Yoreh Deah 331-332). This is not truly lost, but rather the author purposely skipped this section since he dealt fully with the relevant laws in Arukh ha-Shulchan he-Atid on Zeraim.
  • Hilkhot Ketubbot (Even ha-Ezer 66-118).

For these missing parts, the Arukh ha-Shulchan text project at Hebrew Wikisource will suggest the text of Levush Malkhut by Mordecai Yoffe as a useful alternative (Levush Malkhut served as a model for the work Arukh ha-Shulchan). Scanned pages of Levush for the missing parts of Arukh ha-Shulchan are therefore included in this category, as well as in the category for Mordecai Yoffe.
