*I am pleased to inform you that several new ETC publications are NOW
available on Rabbi Tzvee Zahavy’s wonderful Torah resource site
www.halakhah.com (http://halakhah.com/index.html).*

* *

*Newly uploaded are:*

* *

***1.     ****An updated and revised edition of 25 RULES FOR PERFORMING
MITZVOHS derived from the famous Halachic compendium, the Chayei Odom.
This is available at   http://halakhah.com/rst/25rules.pdf.*

***2.     ****A completely new translation with commentaries of SEFER
MISHLEI (the Book of Proverbs).   This you can find at

***3.     ****The first volume (Bereishis) of Dr. Seligmann Baer’s (author
of Siddur Avodas Yisroel) famous MASORETIC TEXT OF THE TANACH.  This can be
accessed at http://halakhah.com/rst/baer1.pdf.  The remaining books of
Tanach (except for Shemos through Devorim which were never produced) will
be available, too, but due to their large size we are trying to figure out
if it should be made available as zip files or on Drop Box or something
like that.*

***4.     ****Another volume in the Hadgashas Hane’emar series, SEFER YONA
http://halakhah.com/rst/yona.pdf.  Soon to be available onhalakhah.com,
please G-d, will be Sefer Esther (in time for Purim) and Sefer Ruth
http://halakhah.com/rst/ruth.pdf.  BTW, the entire Tanach has been
formatted like this and, please G-d, will be made available in due time, as
well.  I think this format is an excellent study tool, particularly for
young students, facilitating faster and better comprehension of the text.*

* *

*Besides these items, halakhah.com hosts a number of other ETC monographs
and works including the comprehensive Hebrew Verb Root thesaurus Shoroshim
http://halakhah.com/rst/shoroshim.pdf, hundreds of non-esoteric passages
from the Zohar http://halakhah.com/rst/kkz.pdf, an index to the usage of
all verses and passages from Tanach in our liturgy, called Shimush Pesukim
http://halakhah.com/rst/pesukim.pdf, a nice translation of Pirkei Avos with
many unique and interesting lists http://halakhah.com/rst/pirkeiavos.pdf
and lots more unique, fun and educational material.*

* *

*On top of all this, you have the entire two-column, easy to read and
download, REFORMATTED SONCINO TALMUD - the only complete, online, English
language translation of the Talmud at http://halakhah.com/indexrst.html as
well as the more traditional format of the Soncino, found scrolled-down
lower on the same page.  Rabbi Zahavy has made available some of his
excellent works there, too, including access to an outstanding, world-class
and highly-recommended philosophical exposition called Whence and
Wherefore written
by his late father, Rabbi Zev Zahavy, ztz”l.   This book explores the most
fundamental issues of the purpose and meaning of the creation, life and
existence.   *
