Shaarey Zedek Maimonides Chavurah Group

8:00PM - 9:30PM  

Congregation Shaarey Zedek 561 Wellington Crescent


Study the works of Moses Maimonides (Rambam) at our monthly Chavurah Group with Rabbi Green and friends. Maimonides was born in Spain, in 1135, and died in Egypt in 1204. He was a true renaissance man, combining in one mind and spirit pre-eminent roles as a rabbi, physician, and philosopher. In the world of Rabbinical seminaries, Maimonides is known as Ha-nesher Ha-gadol—“The Great Eagle”—because of a style of thinking and writing that transcends his own, as well as any other era. Maimonides is truly a rabbi for all generations of the Jewish people. Maimonides approaches material that many people dismiss out of hand because of its irrationality, and makes it palatable to the thinking person—the precise reason why so many study Maimonides today. Refreshments served. Walk-ins welcome.
