Adapted from Sefer Chafetz Chaim and arranged according to the calendar of the Manchester Rosh Yeshivah, Rav Yehuda Zev Segal zt"l
An exciting new way for children and students to learn two halachos a day of shemiras halashon, straight from the source!
Sefer Chafetz Chaim needs no introduction. Who is not familiar with the great tzaddik, Rav Yisrael Meir Hakohen Kagan zt"l, and his groundbreaking sefer on the halachos of shemiras halashon? Yet although, of course, most kids have heard of the Chafetz Chaim and his work, when it comes to their learning these all-important halachos themselves, there has been little to offer them in terms of kid-friendly primary sources.
Now that has changed! Junior Chafetz Chaim
is an easy-to-understand English adaptation of Sefer Chafetz Chaim
that sticks as closely as possible to the actual words of the holy Chafetz Chaim. Tweens and teens can now study the Chafetz Chaim's monumental work, the way he himself wrote it, organized it, and presented it...and they can comprehend it as well! Adults, too, will benefit from the "lite" presentation of the complex halachos
in Sefer Chafetz Chaim
- Arranged according to the popular, two-halachos-a-day calendar of Rav Yehuda Zev Segal zt"l.
- Includes callout boxes such as "Zoom In," "Good Point," "Words of Wisdom," and "Amazing Fact," to pique the interest of the reader, also all directly based on the Chafetz Chaim's own words and explanations.
- Includes "Examples" section, which brings each halachah to life in a contemporary, age-appropriate story. (This is the only part of the page that does not come straight from Sefer Chafetz Chaim.)
- Enthusiastically endorsed and recommended by rabbanim, rabbeim, teachers, and parents. Kid-tested and approved!
"There is no family in the world that studies the laws of shemiras halashon and has not seen some sort of yeshuah in their lives."
