A new sefer published by Rabbi Shmuel Zajac, a Magid Shiur at the Yeshivah in Morristown, explores many complex halachos related to Yom Tov.

The new sefer is the third installment in the series titled “Yesodei Hashulchan Vezikukei Orosov.” It  follows the acclaimed first sefer regarding amira lenochri and second sefer regarding ne’emanus in issurim. In this series, the author, who is well known for his in-depth shiurim and articles, illuminates the Alter Rebbe’s famously deep and concise words in two ways. First, by explaining the foundations upon which the Alter Rebbe based his rulings in the Shulchan Aruch, “Yesodei Hashulchan,” and secondly, by uncovering the novel insights that can be gleaned from them—“Zikukei Orosov.”

The new sefer covers several simanim from Hilchos Yom Tov in the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch. It also explains multiple intricate and innovative sections from Kuntres Acharon on these halachos. It expounds upon the many foundational concepts expressed in these halachos, such as the definition of ochel nefesh, maschshirei ochel nefesh, mitoch, meleches havara, kibui, etc. as well as the laws of eruv tavshilin.

Available now in Seforim stores, the new sefer is decorated with approbations from leading Rabbis and Halachic authorities in the US and Israel. Rabbi Asher Weiss, a renowned posek in Jerusalem writes, “The author of this excellent sefer  . . .  has merited to publish topics of great importance. . .  The foundations of this sefer are grounded in the Torah of the Shulchan Oruch Horav, and the author of this sefer merited to go deeply and broadly with great knowledge and incisive analysis to reach the proper conclusion of the halachah” In an especially enthusiastic approbation, Rabbi Meir Heisler, Rosh Yeshivah of Yeshivas Emek HaTalmud in Jerusalem, writes, “I am astonished at how the author went so deeply and meticulously into each section to understand and comprehend each and every point with understanding and depth.” and adds his own scholarly comments.

The Sefer is especially suitable for Yeshivah students, Kollel Yungerleit, and Rabbonim who wish to learn the halachos of Yom Tov from the Alter Rebbe’s Shulchan Aruch in depth.
