There’s a set of mishnayos called “Mishnah Behirah” with diagrams and other visual aids to clarify terms and cases addressed in the mishna.
I’ve been looking for the volume for Ohalos, but haven’t found it as a separate volume on-line. I did find a volume “Taharos”, though.
Does anyone know whether Ohalos is in that volume?
No. That is Maseches Taharos. I do not believe they ever put out a volume on Ohalos, but I could be mistaken. The Artscroll Yad Avraham has diagrams and there is a large volume called Tavnis Ohalos that has lots of pictures, I believe.
Thank you, Sam2. I appreciate the references to other works.
I think the author of Tavnis Ohalos was niftar a few years ago and I don’t know if his work was officially published for wide distribution or how to obtain a copy. I think he was associated with Gateshead in the UK, so I guess that’s as good a place to start my inquiries as any.
I have seen it in Seforim stores in the united states. The YU Seforim Sale has had it. I think ZBerman has had it.
I have been looking out for this tractate in Mishna Behira series for these past several years, and it does NOT exist. But in last year or so, I saw other new tractates in Seder Taharos coming out, so although I had been led to believe that Oholos may possibly never come in this series, hopefully Oholos shall appear in this series, hopefully sooner than later.
The good news is that I was able to find an on-line copy of what appears to be volume II of Rabbi Posen, zt”l’s “Tavnis Ohalos” and print it for a small fee. I assume it’s volume II since it begins with chapter 3.
The site is Otzar Hahochma. I paid $6 (US) for a one-day pass and another $6 for printing rights.
As long as I had paid for access, I also printed out the author’s work “Tavnis Keilim”.
While I would prefer to have obtained both volumes and still hope to do so, I’m ecstatic to have just this. It’s exactly what I needed.
Thanks again to Sam2 for the reference.
i am a grandson of the author, they just reprinted 1500 copies and they will be arriving in american bookstores shortly
