Hi I'm looking for good set of SHULCHAN ARUCH in English, Not K'tzur I need SHULCHAN ARUCH.

Can someone please advise me on set that I can buy ?


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.

    A quick Google search shows many mishna brura English translations, and I myself just came across a very good one...which I'll try to find bli neder. While perhaps technically a commentary, it includes a translation of the Shulchan aruch. – andrewmh20 Oct 3 '15 at 18:35
  • @andrewmh20 That would only cover the Orach Chayim section of the Shulckan Arukh, but not the other three sections. – Tamir Evan Feb 11 '18 at 19:04
  • @TamirEvan true. Hence a comment. – andrewmh20 Feb 11 '18 at 19:14

It took several years from the OP but I am pleased to announce that Sefaria has posted most of the original-by-Señor-Yosef-Karo Shulchan Aruch in English: https://www.sefaria.org/texts/Halakhah/Shulchan%20Arukh?lang=bi

    Beit Shmuel as well. But 4 out of 6 sections are fully translated and available for free, not too shabby – Josh K Apr 17 '18 at 17:58

I do not know of an English translation that has only the Shulhan Aruch. But the Mishna Brura's translation includes both the Shulhan Aruch and the Chofetz Haim commentary of the SA, see for instance SeforimCenter.com

I actually own an old set of 3 volumes,which translate Choshen Mishpat ,alot of Even Haezer and some of Yoreh Deah. Its called Jewish Code of Jurisprudence by Rabb JL Kadushin. If you put in a search you will see some copies are available.

Kehot, the central Chabad-Lubavitch publishing house, has released an English translation of the Shulchan Aruch HaRav, which you can purchase here.

The Shulchan Aruch HaRav is not to be confused with the regular Shulchan Aruch.

    I think he was looking for R' Yosef Karo's shulchan Aruch – Shmuel Sep 30 '15 at 23:53
  • from the publisher: "Notations appear when the Alter Rebbes rulings are at variance with Rabbi Yosef Karos Shulchan Aruch and when other halachic works cite the subject at hand." – mrmatt11 Oct 1 '15 at 1:10

    but it's still not a translation of the (original) shulchan Aruch – Shmuel Oct 1 '15 at 2:31
