PRAISE FOR THE FIRST VOLUME OF HEADLINES:
“Dazzling... The questions you discuss are extremely enlightening and stimulating... These are questions that engage thinking people, but rarely do the disputants delve into halachic sources... [This work shows] that the Torah speaks authoritatively to every age and every question.”
— Rabbi Nosson Scherman, Artscroll Publishing
“It is a great endeavor to show how Halacha addresses actual and practical matters, for this is the honor of Torah and the main purpose of Torah study.”
— Rabbi Herschel Schachter, Rosh Yeshiva, Rabbi Isaac Elchanan Theological Seminary
