Rabbi Mordechai Friedfertig – former Rabbi of Kehillat Ohr Tzion in Buffalo and now working for Yeshivat Ateret Yerushalayim spreading the Torah Ha-Rav Shlomo Aviner Shilt"a - has authored a book in Hebrew, "Kum Hithalekh Ba-Aretz" – a guide to the halachot of traveling in the Land of Israel. It contains a guide with all of the rulings followed by longer Teshuvot explaining these positions. Many of halachot are based upon the teachings of Ha-Rav Shlomo Aviner Shilt"a, Rosh Yeshiva of Ateret Yerushalayim. There are also comments by Rav Neventzal Shilt"a – Rav of the Old City of Jerusalem and the work has the haskamot of today's leading Rabbis.

Rav Yirmiya bar Abba said in the name of Rabbi Yochanan: "Anyone who walks four amot in the Land of Israel is ensured of a place in the World to Come." Now when you fulfill the mitzvah of traveling around the Land of Israel, you will have a guide to ensure you do so according to the Halachah! It is perfect for anyone who loves Eretz Yisrael, and a great Bar/Bat Mitzvah gift.

The book includes a booklet "Oleh Chadash" which is a guide for anyone making aliyah.

The cost of the book is 60 shekels in Israel and $20 outside of Israel and includes shipping.
