I understand that mishna brurah covers o.c however, what seforim are similar in style to the mishna brurah covers Y.D, C.M, E.H?

  • There are a lot on individual inyanim like Badei Hashulchan for example. Can't think of anything comprehensive.

    Does this answer your question? Mishnah Berurah style commentary on the rest of Shulchan Aruch

  • If you're learning those seriously you should probably have outgrown reliance on summary works like mishna berura

  • Alternately, only knows the old works and has mastered them

  • You think it's better to learn Shulchan Aruch with Nosei Keilim instead of Mishna Brurah for an example (even though the m"b kindve implied that one should learn his sefer Bec we can't do the above properly nowadays with limited time etc)? @DoubleAA

בדי השלחן written by Rav Feivel Cohen on most of the major parts of YD inc. Ta'aruvos, Basav VeChalav, Nidda, Tzedaka, Aveilus.

On Zeraim, there is Derech Emuna by Rav Chaim Kanievsky. This is witten on the Rambam, not on the Shulchan Aruch - however it can be used together when learning Mitzvos Hatluyos Ba'aretz in YD.

חלקת בנימין written by R' Binyomin Cohen (who is the son of the author of בדי השלחן) also has written on some other parts of YD such as Challa and Bishulei Akum and as well as many parts of CM.

If you are looking for a brief concise summary of the main Poskim on the page, you should learn Shulchan Aruch with Baer Heteiv.


You may find "Aruch HaShulchan" By Rabbi Yechiel Michel Epstein (1829–1908) as a good choice. It is very comprehensive but not at the same style as M"B. However it is one of the best Halacha books
