While we were in Romania, some very dear friends gave us this antique copy of the Shulchan Aruch. The Shulchan Aruch is a book written by Yosef Karo in the 16th century. It is a codification of Halacha. This writing is considered scripture within Orthodox Judaism. It has explanation on how to follow the laws in the Bible. For example, how to keep Shabbat, how to light Shabbat candles, what activities are permitted on a Yom Tov, etc. It is studied by all religious Jews.
We are so honored to receive this beautiful gift and will treasure it dearly.
