Yalkut Yosef

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

"Yalkut Yosef" is written to give practical halachic guidance to Jews of Sephardi and Oriental origin; it is widely cited, and a growing number of synagogues and yeshivot are using the work for study purposes [http://www.hashkafah.com/index.php?showtopic=5135] .

The work is published in 27 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 [http://nehora.com/moreinfo.cfm?Product_ID=1938] .
