The Laws and Concepts of Niddah by Rabbi Zvi Sobolofsky. The Michael Scharf Publication Trust of Yeshiva University Press; Maggid Books, 2010.

The first installment of the RIETS Practical Halakhah Series, The Laws and Concepts of Niddah based on the lectures of RIETS Rosh Yeshiva Rabbi Zvi Sobolofsky, is a welcome addition to the publications of YU Press. Rabbi Sobolofsky is well-known for his breadth of knowledge and his clarity of presentation and those traits come across in this book. There is also an extensive Hebrew section containing the primary sources for each topic, making this volume very useful for anyone studying the subject matter of Hilkhot Niddah. Finally, this volume includes the halakhic decisions of RIETS Roshei Yeshiva Rabbis Schachter, Willig and Neuburger, all known for their expertise in Halakhah in general and in the laws of Niddah in particular.
