Laws of cleanliness in family relations
On lessons by rabbi Itshak Ajzik Kahan
FROM THE AUTHOR
I was approached by a Jew , featuring a deep knowledge of the Torah and the fear of God , Rabbi Avraham Yaakov Gvirtsman , one of the special people of the holy city of Jerusalem , and showed me a digest of the laws of the purity of family relations, which he made on the basis of cassette recordings of my lessons. The collection is written in simple language understandable to women and all those who have not studied these laws deep.
I looked through all the brochure and saw that it was written as it should, the author did not add anything and did not miss the fact that it was said in the classroom.
At the moment, the rabbi Gvirtsman is in Pinsk in Belarus to train expensive Jews and bring them to the Torah and the commandments , and he decided to translate the brochure into Russian. I 'm sure he will do a good job.
May the Almighty will help him learn and teach Torah, as well as augment the merits of others. May He give him good health and a clear understanding of his honors and blessed to see the fruits of his labor.
Wrote and signed here in the holy city of Jerusalem, Yitzhak Isaac Kahana
FROM THE PUBLISHER
Compliance with the laws of family purity relationship is the cornerstone of a solid foundation and preservation of the Jews as a people for many generations. Way of life in accordance with these laws remained Jewish women at all times , exactly , with the enthusiasm and the desire for holiness. This is one of the most important asset that we have inherited from our ancestors. This is the thread that connects the chain of generations.
This way of life that distinguishes us from other nations , keeps us from the danger of losing the Jewish identity during the long years of exile . In all countries , at all times and under all authorities Jewish women showed incredible strength of mind to keep themselves clean , even in difficult situations , when this required a huge effort , bordering the dedication. Deep unshakable faith gave them the strength and wisdom to maintain the continuity of the tradition of observing the laws of family purity .
These laws include numerous details , and these days when there are no obstacles to the implementation of these laws , a Jewish woman lurks another danger - forgetfulness . A large number of details and differences between the two leaves many without a clear idea of how to implement the law . Some are even deterred an influx of new information and unfamiliar laws. Our sages have foreseen his gift of providence that in our generation , close to the arrival of Mashiach , the expulsion will be expressed in forgetting the Torah and the loss of clear understanding of the law .
And although it was anything more than we are required to do every possible effort to achieve clarity in the law . Especially when it comes to the soul of the people , and the basis of its existence.
It is appropriate to thank our teacher , Rabbi Yitzchak Isaac Kapan , who devotes his days and nights learning Torah , and in particular , the laws of family purity . In this he has a wealth of experience and a clear understanding by which he points out the well-trodden path in a sea of doubt to anyone who consults with him . Its many lessons and advice he brought light and clarity in the laws of many families .
This booklet contains the basic laws necessary for compliance with the laws of family purity . It builds on the lessons of the famous Rabbi abstracts , and therefore it is possible to find answers to questions that arise in practice, and it may be helpful to others. We picked out those that occur most frequently.
The brochure is designed so that it was easy to find answers to your questions . Some places are tables that help sum up the given laws or practical conclusions.
Let it please the Creator, that this booklet will bring benefit to many readers : learn the laws , understand , remember and carry them out , making a welcome Him.
