Many people on Mi Yodeya (including myself) use the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch as a source in our questions and answers.

Sometimes I have questions on certain phrases or passages in the Kitzur. Should there be a tag for it? There is currently a tag for "Shulchan Aruch", but the tag description is:

A classic work of Jewish Law, compiled and written by R' Yosef Karo.

The Kitzur was not written by Karo, but by a Hungarian rabbi named Shlomo Ganzfried. I recently asked a question concerning the Kitzur Shulchan Aruch on Mi Yodeya and went ahead and tagged it under "Shulchan Aruch" but I don't think it's exactly fitting.

What are your thoughts?

There seem to be quite a few questions addressing material from the Kitzur, at least some of them about the Kitzur itself as a work. It seems to me that it would make sense to have such a tag.

I wouldn't go back and apply it to every question that ever quoted the Kitzur, but ones that are tagged but quote the Kitzur and not the Shulchan Aruch and ones that are about the Kitzur as a work would be good candidates for retagging.

  • So do you think I made the right choice in my decision to tag my question about the Kitzur with "shulchan-aruch" then?

    @ezra Eh, it's not horrible. I agree with you that kitzur-shulchan-aruch would be better.
