The Mishnah Berurah sometimes quotes a sefer Shulchan Shlomo (e.g. 489:3 that women should not count sefiras haomer with a beracha since they will inevitably forget a day). Does anyone know who the author of this sefer Shulchan Shlomo is (it cannot be R' Shlomo Zalman Auerbach (though he authored a book of that name) as he lived after the Chofetz Chaim) and/or where a copy of the sefer can be found?

  • Hi Yaakov! What have you checked? Hebrewbooks.org has 4 books with that name, for instance.

    1. Just for the record, RSZA (1910-1995) was 23 when the Chofetz Chaim (1839–1933) died. 2. RSZA did not write a Sefer called Shulchan Shlomo. (It's probably one of the post-mortem books written in his name.) Apr 21, 2015 at 7:01

Hebrewbooks.org has a book with that title by R Shlomo Zalman Mirkash containing the ruling you reference about women and counting the Omer (available here).


There is an online shiur that deals with the author of that sefer. It is the class dated June 15. http://www.webyeshiva.org/course/the-mishna-berura-and-its-sources/
