About Me/Contact Me

I often receive inquiries as to who I am and why I do not post my name and credentials on my website.

For various reasons, I have started this “Halacha For Today” project anonymously. Not posting my name  also allows me to continue this work L’shem Shomayim, as the Chazon Ish Zatzal used to tell people they should do at least one worthwhile  project in their lifetime anonymously, strictly for the Kavod of the Ribono Shel Olam. (In fact, when he first started publishing his landmark work, “Chazon Ish” . he released each chapter anonymously, by placing it in the Bais Medrash under cover of darkness)

I started it as a small email which I sent to a few friends and  never expected at the time that it would grow at such a rapid pace, reach such a large audience, or take up so much of my time.

All the Halachos that I write are taken directly from the Sefarim of the Poskim, and sources are given for each halacha. I do not write anything of my own.
Furthermore, I clearly state that the Halachos are for learning purposes only and not for Psak Halacha, as a Rav should be consulted for a final ruling.

Lastly, there are many Talmidei Chachamim, including Rabbanim with Smicha that read my emails daily and they are sure to let me know on  rare occasions when something I wrote needs revisions or clarification.

Although I am hesitant to reveal my name, I can tell you that I currently live in Lakewood NJ. I spent many years learning in Yeshivas both in the USA and in Eretz Yisroel, and always had an interest in Halacha. I am married with children Baruch Hashem. I am a simple Yid who seeks to spread K’Vod Shomayim in the world, and it is my sincere Tefilah that this website as well as the daily Halacha emails accomplish just that.

I welcome  questions, suggestions, ideas, comments, and even constructive criticism. I can be reached at the following email address:
I will Bli Neder respond to each and every email that I receive as soon as possible.

Important Note: 

All halachos are written from an Ashenazic perspective and follow the rulings of Ashkenazic Poskim. Though I endeavor to point out whenever Sephardic rulings and customs differ from what I write, by no means have I adequately researched the Sephardic point of view of any halachos I write and my dear Sephardic readers should please review all rulings with their own Chachamim.
