    Praise for Amot Shel Halacha:

    "Rabbi Ari Enkin has successfully authored another outstanding sefer of modern day Halachic issues-- It is written in a very clear manner that is balanced and easy to understand. The issues presented are extremely interesting and certain to provide every reader with something of interest.
    Truly a worthwhile contribution."

    "I have used excerpts of Rabbi Enkin's book with my students and we have enjoyed them all. I have found his writings to contain a great deal of valuable material-- This is a unique sefer by a talented and distinguished Torah scholar."
    -Rabbi Ephraim Greenblatt, Noted Posek, Author, Shu't Rivevot Ephraim


    "I have read a number of Rav Ari Enkin's writings and I have enjoyed them immensely. He has a talent for choosing topics of interest and presenting the material in an enjoyable and balanced manner. I recommend his writings to anyone who desires to deepen their knowledge about important Torah topics."
    -Rabbi Howard Jachter, Dayan, Beit Din of Elizabeth, Author, "Gray Matter" Halacha series


    The genre of halachic responsa is more than a thousand years old. Since early consultations between rabbis were not limited by political boundaries, responsa were usually written in the com�mon language, Hebrew. The late twentieth century witnessed new sorts of responsa. In Israel, responsa are to be found on Web sites, and they are far shorter than the traditional answers to questions, omitting detailed discussion and citing fewer sources. Rabbi Enkin, like other American rabbis who have abandoned the conventional format, retains the sources, but writes in Eng�lish. His discussions are fairly traditional, replete with footnotes and extremely relevant to the Orthodox Jew�s daily life. Rabbi Enkin�s conclusions are usually normative with the exception of shaving on Hol ha-Moed, where he embraces the most lenient view. I was impressed by the book�s intuitive organization and I will certainly refer to it in the future.
