By Rabbi Yitzchok Isaac Kahana (author) and Rabbi Netanel Tessler (translator)
from the leading poskim
of the previous generation, Sefer Orchos Taharah is a classic. The halachos
are written in a clear, concise manner, making it the option of choice for anyone wanting a quick reference or a full review. The explanations found at the back of the sefer give the reader a glimpse into the depth, complexity, and mesorah that goes into every psak
. They are all-encompassing and unambiguous, appealing to layman and scholar, young and old alike.
With this new, easy-to-read translation, Rabbi Tessler makes this sefer, so integral to a Jewish home, more accessible to men and women who want to learn, review, and retain these beautiful and important halachos.
[T]he translation is thorough, accurate, and reads exactly as intended by Rabbi Isaac Kahana… I cannot recommend this sefer enough.

Sefer Orchos Taharah is a very popular sefer… Rabbi Netanel Tessler, shlita, has done a beautiful job in translating it into English…easy to read and accessible to all.

A unique gift to the Torah world. Reb Netanel has prepared many chassanim for marriage and understands the complexities and challenges that face our youth in building Torah-true homes… [T]his volume will be a significant addition to the olam haTorah.

About the Author
Rav Yitzchok Isaac Kahana, hailing from a family of rabbanim, learned by the poskei ha’dor of the last generation, including Rav Moshe Aryeh Friend, the Gaavad of Yerushalayim; Rav Henoch Padwa, the baal Cheshev V’Ephod; the Maharitz Dushinsky; and Rav Yitzchok Yaakov Weiss, the Raavad of Yerushalayim and the baal Minchas Yitzchok. He was the rav in Brachfeld before becoming a rav in Zupnick, where Rav Yitzchok Yaakov Weiss was rav previously. The constant stream of people asking his halachic and hashkafic guidance at his beis horaah is a reflection of his tireless efforts and deep-rooted drive to understand and have a crystal clear understanding of halachah in order to help each and every one of them.
