The material was compiled by a staff of accomplished Sephardic Torah scholars including Rabbi Gad Yazdi, who was Hacham Ovadia Yosef’s trusted personal editor for 21 years; Rabbi Ovadia Yosef Toledano, Hacham Ovadia’s grandson; and Rav Shmuel Yair, Rabbi Yazdi’s brother-in-law and a former havruta of Chief Rabbi Yitzchak Yosef.
Includes material culled from dozens of seminal Sephardic luminaries: the Hida, Rabbi Yehuda Ayash, Rabbi Haim Palagi and his sons Rabbis Yitzchak and Avraham Palagi, the Ben Ish Hai, Rabbi Eliyahu Mani (a close friend of the Ben Ish Hai), the Sede Hemed, the Kaf Hahaim, Tunisian scholars such as Rabbi Moshe Halfon Hakohen and Rabbi Rahamim Hai Hawita Hakohen, and modern-day sages such as Hacham Benzion Abba Shaul, Rav Shalom Mashash (the late Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem), and Hacham Ovadia Yosef. Mishna Berurah Tiferet also presents material relevant to modern-day halachic questions involving technology and other contemporary issues.
Mishna Berurah Tiferet gives Sephardic students the best of both worlds – the ability to take advantage of the clarity and extensiveness of the Mishna Berurah, while learning the halachic decisions of the great Sephardic luminaries. It will, without doubt, become a fixture on bookshelves in homes, synagogues and yeshivot throughout the Sephardic world, and add yet another magnificent link to the golden chain of Sephardic Torah scholarship.
