The Shulchan Aruch was written by Rabbi Yosef Karo in the mid-sixteenth century. That is the reference to #1 ("stam" means plain, without any additional qualifications. Since then, others have appropriated the name or made names that have allusions to it, when writing books which have a similar purpose - to structure and organize Jewish Law into a relatively ...
In the Dirshu Mishna Berura (based on the "Leshem") print, it is translated in a footnote as a game similar to "חמש אבנים" (lit. five stones) - when I was a kid it was called kuglach. It's similar to the game of jacks.
והוכיחה בדברים ואינו משגחת עליו means he rebuked her with words and she pays him no heed.
Consider Bavli Sanhedrin 22a: אמר רב חנה בר ביזנא אמר רבי שמעון חסידא: המתפלל צריך שיראה עצמו כאילו שכינה כנגדו, שנאמר שויתי ה' לנגדי תמיד. Rav Chana son of Bizna said in the name of Rabbi Shimon Chasida: One who prays must see himself as if the Shechina were opposite him, as it says, "I have set the LORD always before me."
It would seem that the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch (d. 1886) is quoting theBe'er Heitev in Siman 170 סימן קע - דברי מוסר שינהג אדם בסעדה who says: באר היטב (טז) עמהם. אפי' בסעודת מצוה. מט''מ: (עי' בס' אליהו רבה שמביא בשם של''ה כמה דיני מוסר בסעודה וכתב בשם רוקח: דרך ארץ לא יאכל אדם מעומד ולא ישתה מעומד ולא יקנח הקערה כו' ולא יעמוד מיד אחר הסעודה ולכל מין מאכל ...
The source for this is the Masechet Derech Eretz; one of the minor tractates (4:1): מי שהוא תלמיד חכם, לא יאכל מעומד, ולא ישתה מעומד, ולא יקנח את הקערה, ולא ילקק באצבעותיו, ולא יגהק בפני חבירו, מיעוט שיחה, מיעוט שחוק, מיעוט שינה, מיעוט תענוג, מיעוט הן הן, מיעוט לאו לאו It gives a list of personal habits that Torah scholars should adopt including not ...
The Shulchan Aruch's organization is based on that of the Tur. In particular, here, the laws listed in the question are presented in the same order, with the same section-numbering, in the Tur. So, the question is why :22 and :23 are in that order in the Tur. When the Tur presents the laws in 61:16-22, it does so without explicitly citing sources, ...
Here is an image (from a late 14th century - early 15th century manuscript of the Tur) of the beginning of Siman 89 (although this manuscript seems to be from before the simanim were labeled, but you can compare it to siman 89 here), where the heading for הלכות תפילה should appear. Here is the beginning of Siman 61, where the heading for הלכות קריאת שמע ...
The following is not more than a contribution to an answer because it could be that the garment referred to in the gemoro quoted is a talis godol and not a tallis koton. The Gemoro in Menachos 41a brings a story of R. Kattina. This indicates that although the obligation of tzitzis is on the garment and not on the wearer, one is liable for punishment in a ...
See the notes below which show that one can stipulate that lighting the candles will not bring in the Shabbas until later, while saying maarive absolutely does so. DinOnline says Driving After Lighting Candles 19 Av 5771 The Question: Can a single person light shabbos candles with a bracha with a tanai (condition) that shabbos will be accepted ...
The section called Orach Chaim is actually divided into thirty (unequal) parts. Look in the beginning of each section on the page called לוח הסימנים. There is a title heading for the sections. I'm willing to assume this is what he was reffering to.
There was a previous sefer called Be'er Heitev, by R. Yeshatah b. R. Avraham, and that is what he is quoting--אשר לפני means "that preceded me," not "that is in front of me." See here https://he.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/באר_היטב#.D7.A1.D7.A7.D7.99.D7.A8.D7.AA_.D7.94.D7.9E.D7.94.D7.93.D7.95.D7.A8.D7.95.D7.AA
There is no set of the straight Shulchan Arukh in English. You can find English versions of its commentaries, or sets of Kitzur. But as for just the Shulchan Arukh, you are out of luck.
In siman 89 the Mechaber says waiting six hours between meat and milk is the letter of the law, the Ramma says it is a custom.
