Halacha Meets Wiki

Welcome to Halachipedia.com!

Our mission is to create the most comprehensive resource of Halachik information online, for free, and easily accessible to all. Join yeshiva students across Israel and America in this tremendous undertaking. With support from people like you, we can create an encyclopedic resource to benefit millions of Jews. We would greatly appreciate any contribution - whether it be a large topic or a small footnote - as Jews, we all have a unique chailek of Torah we must share with others. Feel free to add whatever you know and others will fill in the gaps, "It is not incumbent upon you to finish the task, but neither are you free to absolve yourself from it" (Pirkei Avot 2:16).

At this point, we are currently in the building phase of the site. In terms of content, please stick to pure halacha. This is NOT the forum for hot topics in Judaism. Moreover, although all Torah is greatly treasured - this site is not intended for divrei Torah on the parsha, hashkafa, or machshava. Lastly, as the content is only as stong as its references, please try to source all information (gemara, rishonim, shulchan aruch and mishna brura and achronim).

In an effort to combat vandalism, the process is as following: For the first contribution, you will email us and we will verify and post it on your behalf. If accredited, your account will be upgraded for permission (see below).

FYI: This is for absolutely zero financial profit - L’Hagdil Torah

Caution: This site is meant as a resource and is la-halakhah ve-lo le-ma'aseh. Consult your Rabbi before following any practices advocated here.

Important Announcements

Browse: There are multiple ways of finding halacha:
  1. Browse by an alphabetical listing of every page

Create Login Account: In order to monitor contributions and edits, guest editing is locked. Please create an account by clicking on the link in the top right corner.
