Description
 
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 Shebíal Peh (the Oral Torah) get from Moshe Rabbeinu to us?
  • Whatís the reason for the order of topics in the Mishnah?
  • Why does the Mishnah record opinions that arenít 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 Torahís laws?
  • How do we understand the narratives of the Aggadata?

This edition features:

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