My Hebrew is solid - I am able to get around Israel. When I learn works of Halacha (Aruch HaShulchan, Mishna Berura, Kitzur) I am not able to follow due to not knowing words and acronyms. What is a good resource to be able to learn these works without an English translation? A learning dictionary that includes acronyms?

If you have an understanding of grammar and are able to look at a word and see what is the shoresh (the root) and what is prefixes and suffixes, I recommend using a hebrew-english dictionary. There are multiple that should be for sale in physical/online seforim/judaica stores.

  • Will the many Aramaic words used in halachic words be found in such dictionaries??
