The Rambam's Guide to the Mishnah and Talmud

$ 24.95

A fundamental guide for any Gemara student

Over 800 years ago, the Rambam composed his Commentary on the Mishnah with an introduction that served as a guide to the Mishnah and Talmud. It dealt with many fundamental questions, such as:

  • How did Torah Sheb’al Peh (the Oral Torah) get from Moshe Rabbeinu to us?
  • What’s the reason for the order of topics in the Mishnah?
  • Why does the Mishnah record opinions that aren’t accepted?
  • Which Sages are mentioned in the Mishnah, and what are their relationships with each other?
  • What rights and limits did the Sages have in adding decrees to the Torah’s laws?
  • How do we understand the narratives of the Aggadata?

This edition features:

  • A revised, free-flowing English rendition based on Rav Ezra Korach’s new Hebrew translation of the Rambam’s Judeo-Arabic
  • The Hebrew and English translations on facing pages
  • Notes with additional insights into the Rambam’s words
  • A comprehensive index
