"Is it is mitzva to Save a Terrorist in Danger?" - Rav Eliezer Melamed, Baltimore Jewish Times (Read article)

“The Rabbi has done amazing work here and books are a pleasure. I do not just want to recommend these to you, I want you to run out and them now. “ Blogger Amos Lassen (Read review)

“It’s hard to imagine anyone ever doing a better job …than [Rav Melamed] has done here… Moreover, the volumes offer… a very useful index, and an outstanding translation by Dr. Yocheved Cohen – precise, fluid, and jargon-free.” - Chicago Jewish Star (Read review)

“The author utilizes easy-to-understand language that also clearly explains the theoretical and theological roots of these important laws, making it relevant to this generation of Jews…” – The Jewish Connection (Read review)

I do not know of a better compendium of Jewish law than Peninei Halakha by Harav Eliezer Melamed shlita. The clarity and organization of the legal requirements of Judaism makes the study of Jewish law most pleasurable for any interested student. I recommend it with all my heart. - Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, Chancellor of Ohr Torah Stone Colleges and Graduate Programs

For some years now, Rav Eliezer Melamed, the spiritual leader of the yeshiva and community of Har Bracha in Israel, has been publishing guidebooks which enable Jews with a very wide range of religious backgrounds to better observe halakhic practice…. I recommend this translation to the English-reading public. This series will educate and inspire the reader and help achieve a higher level of meaningful religious observance. - Rabbi Dr. Tzvi Hersh Weinreb, Executive Vice President Emeritus of the Orthodox Union
