Product Description
NO DUST JACKET This abridged edition of Maimonides’ Mishneh Torah is designed for the use of students, scholars and laymen, both in the classroom and in home study The masterly skill with which Mairnonides compressed the entire Jewish lore into his code of law and ethics makes it possible for every person to become familiar with the style and contents of the, entire range of talmudic-midráshic thinking. No detail escaped him, and the Mishneh Torah is regarded as the most systematic and comprehensive codification of Jewish law. The translation by Dr. Birnbaum, which has been in use for some time in a Hebrew/English edition of this work, is itself a model of clarity and simplicity of expression Practically each page contains brief explanations and notes in order to make Maimonides’ classic work easily comprehensible to all.
