Chabad Unveils New Website on Maimonides

Chabad Lubavitch Headquarters

(lubavitch.com) Commemorating twenty five years since the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of blessed memory, proposed that all Jews commit to a daily study of Maimonides’s Code pf Jewsh Law, Chabad Lubavitch unveiled this past  Wednesday a new website on Maimonides.

Maimonides was one of the greatest Torah scholars of all time, as well as a physician and philosopher. Born in Cordoba, Spain in 1135, he wrote several volumes on Jewish law and Jewish philosophy, among them his magnum opus, the Mishneh Torah, a summary of the entire corpus of Jewish law. Maimonides, or Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, also known as Rambam, died in Egypt in 1204 and was buried in Tiberias.
 
The new website is a historic development in the study of Maimonides. At last, the full English text of Maimonides's Mishneh Torah is available online in English. In addition, the new site offers a series of audio and video lectures on the works of Maimonides as well as a biography of his life and numerous essays on the writings of Maimonides courtesy of Merkos-Kehot Publications.

The project was unveiled by our Torah-Judaism website, chabad.org to coincide with the end of this year's cycle of study of Maimonides.
