Summary: The Halakhah embodies the complete Jewish Law, and contains commandments and guidelines for day-to-day living. The original commandments given by God to the Jewish people were enhanced by rabbis to offer a detailed framework to guide the lives of all Jews.In this complete, all-encompassing encyclopaedia of the Halakhah, the various laws are classified in such a way that a systematic and coherent structure is obtained. Each entry of the Halakhah is presented in a logical fashion. Where applicable, the original biblical wording is given, extended with literal abstracts from the Torah. Next, problems and questions that may arise from that law are stated and any additional information given. Finally, each entry gives comprehensive explanations and recommendations as to how these laws are to be observed in daily life where to be and where not to be, what to do and what not to do, what to say and what not to say. The Halakhah, or standard Jewish Law, combines the Mishnah (about 200 CE), the Tosefta (about,300 CE), and the two Talmuds (about 400, 600 CE for the Land of Israel and Babylon, respectively). Volumes I and II contain entries pertaining to the Jewish people in relationship to God. Volume III explains how the Jewish people can restore and maintain their society in accordance with the Torah as it is explained by the rabbis. In Volumes IV and V of this study, we take up the life of the Jewish household in their encounter with God. The Encyclopaedic account therefore moves from regulating relationships between Israel and God to establishing stable and equitable relationships among Israelites and finally to actually living the Halakhah.

Inhaltsangabe: In the normative law, the Halakhah embodies the theology of Judaism in the norms of concrete conduct. This encyclopaedia covers, rubric by rubric, all of the native category-formations that organize the diverse laws into a systematic and coherent structure. Each category formation is set forth with attention to its definitions and foundations, if any, in Scripture. The Halakhah of the Mishnah-Tosefta-Yerushalmi-Bavli is then summarized in detail, through verbatim abstracts. The detailed entries then take up, thirdly, the problematics of the law, the questions that the framers bring to bear upon the topic and the data they have in hand. Finally, in each category-formation, there is a religious commentary to the Halakhah of the Oral Torah. This second volume, like the first, addresses the category-formations that pertain to Israel in relationship to God. The third volume of the encyclopaedia explains how holy Israel will restore and then maintain that society that comes into being when the Torah is realized by the kingdom of priests and the holy people. In Volumes Four and Five of this study, we take up the life of the Israelite household in the encounter with God. The account therefore moves from regulating relationships between Israel and God to establishing stable and equitable relationships among Israelites and finally to nurturing in the household itself a realm of sanctification: Israel at home in space and time with God.
