The previous works of Rabbi Getzel Akum have established him as a Halachic expositor of the first order. His Mattir Issurim on the Halachos of commerce and Lo BaShamayim Hi on the Halachos of air travel remain modern classics of the field.

Now he turns his erudite focus and masterful pen to an area that has become increasingly relevant to the Torah community—the Halachos of incarceration. This groundbreaking work addresses the plethora of issues that today’s Jewish inmate faces in his valiant efforts to adhere to Halacha, including the following:
  • What are the requirements for conducting Bedikas Chometz in one’s cell?
  • May a shiv set aside before Shabbos be handled on Shabbos?
  • Can one be Yotzei the Mitzvah of Mishloach Manos with cigarettes—and, if so, do menthols qualify as a separate Bracha?
  • May one carry an object from one’s cell to an exercise yard on Shabbos?
  • How do the Halachos of Yichud apply in the prison context?
Exhaustive yet clear, detailed yet easy to follow, comprehensive yet concise—and now with a Haskamah from the Spinka Rebbe—this monumental book belongs in every Jewish home and library. It will become a mainstay for scholar and layman alike.

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I'm
assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
penny? I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos
