Levush — A Fundamental Halachic Work
The Levush’s sefarim were widely accepted throughout the Jewish world, and many gedolim established a fixed time to learn from them every day. His sefarim, reprinted in several editions even during his lifetime, were popular for their concise language and inclusion of reasons and sources of the halachos they present.
Many sages and halachic authorities who succeeded him, including the Sm”a, Sha”ch, and Ta”z drew from the wells of his wisdom. In Mishnah Brurah, the Chafetz Chaim references the Levush hundreds of times!
