fun facts about his tattoo (אַרְבַּעָה טוּרִים) The title of the work in Hebrew means “four rows”, in allusion to the jewels on the High Priest’s breastplate. Each of the four divisions of the work is a “Tur”, so a particular passage may be cited as “Tur Orach Chayim, siman 22”, meaning “Orach Chayim division, chapter 22”. This was later misunderstood as meaning “Tur, Orach Chayim, chapter 22” (to distinguish it from the corresponding passage in the Shulchan Aruch), so that “Tur” came to be used as the title of the whole work.
The Arba’ah Turim, as the name implies, consists of four divisions (“Turim”); these are further organised by topic and section (siman, pl. simanim).
The four Turim are as follows:
Orach Chayim - laws of prayer and synagogue, Sabbath, holidays
Yoreh De’ah - miscellaneous ritualistic laws, such as shechita and kashrut
Even Ha’ezer - laws of marriage, divorce
Choshen Mishpat - laws of finance, financial responsibility, damages (personal and financial) and legal procedure
