Yalkut Yosef

Yalkut Yosef (Hebrew: ילקוט יוסף‎, "Collation of Yosef") is an authoritative, contemporary work of Halakha, providing a detailed explanation of the Shulchan Aruch as based on the halachic rulings [1] of the former Rishon LeTzion Rav Ovadia Yosef. It was written by Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, his son.

Yalkut Yosef is written to give practical halachic guidance to Jews of Sephardi and Mizrahi origin; it is widely cited, and a growing number of synagogues and yeshivot are using the work for study purposes.[2]

The work is published in 24 volumes and includes a 2 volume "kitzur" (summary). It currently covers all of the Orach Chayim section of the Shulchan Aruch and parts of Yoreh De'ah dealing with Kashrut.[3]

A new English edition, "The Saka Edition-Yalkut Yosef",[4] is currently being published under the leadership of Rabbi Yisrael Bitan of Haketer Institute of Jerusalem. As of September 2013, 13 volumes have been published and additional volumes are under preparation.[5] Haketer Institute plans on publishing 33 volumes which will cover all areas of Sephardi Halacha observance.
