A new book of explanations in Talmud and Jewish law, written by a young Lubavitch bochur, is garnering praise from leading rabbis.
“Ateres Moshe” was authored by Moshe Chaim Chanunu from Kfar Chabad, Israel, who is currently learning in the Central Tomchei Tmimim Lubavitch Yeshiva – 770 in Brooklyn.
It offers his own commentary (“chidushim”) on Gamara and the 4 volumes of Shulchan Aruch.
The sefer joins the many publications of similar notes on Torah and Chassidus published weekly and monthly by Chabad Yeshivos worldwide.
Among the rabbis and halachic authorities praising Chanunu’s work were former Israeli Sephardi Chief Rabbis Ovadia Yosef and Eliyahu Bakshi Doron, current Chief Rabbi Shlomo Amar, Kfar Chabad Rabbi Mordechai Shmuel Ashkanazi and Kiryat Gat Chief Rabbi Moshe Havlin, who was Chanunu’s Rosh Yeshiva.
Rabbi Yosef Heller, Rosh of the Kolel Menachem in Crown Heights, said he was impressed by Chanunu when he spent a few weeks learning in the Kolel.
“I’ve seen myself the greatness of his perseverance and diligence in Torah,” the rabbi wrote in a letter.
