I suspect that that refers to the Chazon Ish. The letters fit, and the Chazon Ish's rulings are often quoted alongside those of the Mishna Berura.

The Lubavitcher Rebbe says that he was worthy that his sefer was accepted by all Jews since he was "a man who wanted life" (Ish Ha-chofetz Chaim). The Lubavitcher Rebbe there suggested that people learn Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim, the Rama, the Nosei Keilim, Alter Rebbe's Shulchan Aruch (the Shulchan Aruch Harav) and the Mishna Brura.

I have heard the same rumour. I found the following by Rav Aviner. He was asked that whether the Kiddush cup of the Chafetz Chaim was like the measurement of Ha-Rav Chaim Naeh and not like that of the Chazon Ish.   His answer was This is brought by Ha-Rav Moshe Karp as testified by the Chafetz Chaim's grandson, Ha-Rav Hillel Zacks, the Rav of the ...

First of all, there's no rule that all of the litvishe Ashkenazim have to follow the Mishna Berura. It was very well accepted, but deciding on each halacha is a very complicated matter, and on every page of the Dirshu or Oz VeHadar versions of the Mishna Berurah you can find places where later poskim have disagreed and where certain rulings of the Mishna ...

On a less miraculous note, the ibn Ezra (Shemos 20:1)rejects a literal reading of the chazal that shamor and zachor were said simultaneously. In a lengthy piece, he promotes the idea that words embody meaning and when there is a quote of someone where words are added to the quote, or changed, this is not a contradiction. The quote is merely elaborating on ...

I think there may be a number of factors that led to the Mishnah Berurah becoming the accepted work in many circles. In each topic, the aruch hashulchan presents the whole sugya, which makes it better for someone learning, but not as quick if you just want the final halacha. The mishnah berurah separates out the discussion part, so its quicker to see the ...

In general, one is not allowed to rule on a halachik quandary in place of his Rabbi. (What exactly is defined as 'in his place' is a separate discussion.) The Shulchan Aruch YD 242:9 rules like the Ri as quoted in Haghot Maimoniot 5:3 in Hilchot Talmud Torah that: כל הכתוב בספרים מפסקי הגאונים יכול להורות בימי רבו, רק לא יורה דבר מלבו ולא יסמוך על ...

The Ish Masliah version would probably be what you're looking for. It brings when the Kaf HaHaim disagrees with the M"B, when Hacham Ovadia and also Rav Moshe Lewi disagree as well. As well as many other great features Here it is online for around 90$.

Tehilim 62:12 says: God spoke one thing, I heard two, for God has strength. Rashi says: ...our Sages interpreted it as referring to [the maxim that] “Remember” and “Keep” were stated in a single utterance. See also Rashi Shemot 20:8. In fact, Rashi (Shemot 20:1) says that all the 10 Commandments were originally said simultaneously, and ...

The Mishna Berura Oz WeHadar that it is split into many volumes has these features: Biurim- explanation of the words of the Shulhan Aruch, Rama, and Mishna Berura including the relevant sources from the Gemara and Rishonim. Biurei HaHalacha- explanation of the words of the Biurei Halacha includingthe relevant sources from the Gemara and Rishonim. Tsiyunim ...

The wikisource is incomplete. For anything else, there are scanned copies on Hebrewbooks: MB Chelek 1 http://hebrewbooks.org/14170 MB Chelek 2 http://hebrewbooks.org/14164 MB Chelek 3 http://hebrewbooks.org/14171 MB Chelek 4 http://hebrewbooks.org/40448 MB Chelek 5 http://hebrewbooks.org/14169 MB Chelek 6 http://hebrewbooks.org/14166

It means "known sins". The article is saying that if the talmud chacham knows that he has sinned, then he must fast (to help atone for his sins).

There is a new Mishna Berura Tiferes Hamizrach - with all the Sefardi Poskim - published by Zundel Berman. So far it is only available on Hilchos Chanuka from volume 6, however the author is planning on doing the entire Mishna Berura over the next few years. Can be purchased at Hamefitzim or Mekor Judaica.

The chassidim in communities i know, this means poskim and dayanim, who bishita don't view the mishna berurah as the posek achron rely upon the rav shulchan aruch. This is a general attitude, not limited to satmar.

Actually the non-Chasidic (Ashkenaz) haredim follow the Shulchan Aruch with the Rema's additions, as do other Ashkenazim. When more clarification is needed, they (and all frum Jews) will consult the Nosei Keilim (commentaries) printed on the page and the back of the volume. A deeper understanding of how the Halacha came to be, would require opening the ...

On Yoreh Daioh the most popular sefer today is Badai Hashulchan by Rabbi Feival Cohen, although there are many, many more also written in the same style as the mishne berura. Some others include (although not on all of it) Chelkas Binyamin Gufai Halochos. Maadanai hashulchan and Zer hashulchan. On Even Hoezer there is Otsar Haposkim which is used by all ...

I assumed it was a matter of a reference to the holiday of Sukkos, not to a Sukkah. Exodus 34:22: וְחַג שָׁבֻעֹת תַּעֲשֶׂה לְךָ, בִּכּוּרֵי קְצִיר חִטִּים; וְחַג, הָאָסִיף--תְּקוּפַת, הַשָּׁנָה And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, even of the first-fruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the turn of the year. The ...

Just to add another point, the Mishna Berurah is the most comprehensive work in terms of analyzing all the different opinions both in the Rishonim and in the commentaries of the Shulchan Aruch and other Halachic works, and he addresses almost every issue and difficulty that arises when one learns a siman in Shulchan Aruch in depth. In this regard, his work ...
