"Rabbi Kaganoff, an esteemed talmid chacham and posek inåÊJerusalem, has been writing a halachah column for many years,åÊaddressing a wide range of contemporary issues such as kashrus,åÊbusiness ethics, buying life insurance ... and many, many more.åÊRabbi Kaganoff leads the reader with gentleness and clarity throughåÊall the relevant sources from the Gemara through the most recentåÊteshuvos.
