The purpose of digesting rabbinical responsa into English is to afford the English reader an opportunity to learn Jewish life through first hand information. In the following pages I have endeavored to present a digest of Solomon Luria's responsa in the hope that many other responsa will be give similar treatment. This work is not designed to form a biography of one of the great rabbis who wrote responsa, but to show the value of responsa proper as a source for Jewish history and law.
