    one good way is to learn chumash Rashi and Mishnayot Bartenura and Ykar Toyt. before all. but kitsur S.A. is also good, next steps are endless – kouty Apr 10 '16 at 21:18

    Arukh haShulchan is always excellent for his presentation from the original sources to his conclusion. But none of this is specific to Pesach. There are tons of Halachic works out there and most of them cover such a central topic as Pesach. Are you looking for something unique to Pesach, different from how you'd approach any other topic? – Double AA Apr 10 '16 at 21:36
  • I can't vouch that's it's a good way, but one way is to learn through the Rambam (pesach and chu"m) and, for each halacha, investigate upward (to its source) and downward (Rif, Rosh, Mord'chay, etc., En Mishpat Ner Mitzva, Tur, etc.). Throwing in something like the Maharil will help you pick up some of what you missed along the way. – msh210 Apr 10 '16 at 21:36

    @menachem While the Shulchan Arukh haRav is a fine book, unless you are precommitted to following Chabad about everything, I'd strongly recommend against using it as your primary study text. Arukh haShulchan (among other sources suggested above) gives much better background and much more mainstream conclusions which better reflect common practice for the rest of mainstream Ashkenazic Jewry outside the world of Chabad. – Double AA Apr 10 '16 at 23:27

    If you don't plan on learning the Tur and Shulchan Aruch,or the Mishnah Brurah (Aruch Hashulchan ) then I would recommend Rav Shimon Eiders sefer on pesach which I believe is a great resource for what you are describing. feldheim.com/authors/eider-rabbi-shimon-d/… – sam Apr 11 '16 at 0:07
