Tammuz 26

January 7, 2010 | by Aish.com

Yahrtzeit of Rabbi Shlomo Ganzfried (1804-1886), author of the popular Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (Concise Code of Jewish Law). He was born in Carpathia, and later became a rabbi in Ungvar, Hungary. Ganzfried wrote the Concise Code to provide an easy guide to practical Jewish law, for those Jews who were not in a position to study and comprehend Rabbi Yosef Karo's original Code and its many commentaries. The Concise Code became immensely popular, and it is estimated that over two million copies have been printed. (Other sources list his yahrtzeit as Tammuz 28.)
