"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. His essays are thorough, well-organized and delightful toåÊread. They are also genuinely helpful in the practical, l'maaseh sense.åÊIt is a cause for celebration that these essays are being republishedåÊin book form so that they may be preserved in a more permanentåÊmedium. The attentive reader will gain much -- not only in halachahåÊbut in understanding the process through which halacha is derived."
-- Rabbi Yitzchok Breitowitz,åÊMaggid shiur, Yeshivas Ohr Somayach, andåÊRabbi Emeritus, Woodside Synagogue, Silver Spring, Maryland
