For those who study RaMBaM’s Mishneh Torah, the most frustrating aspect of study is to discover how Maimonides came to the conclusions that he did, for unlike other legal codifiers, RaMBaM never documented his sources.

Rather, the distinction of Maimonides, who is also the most eminent codifier biblical literature: The medieval period philosopher and codifier Maimonides (Moses ben Maimon, –) composed, among many other works, his Guide of the Perplexed to help readers who were bewildered by apparent contradictions between the biblical text and the findings of reason.

Moses Maimonides, aka Rabbeinu Moshe ben Maimon, aka Musa ibn Maymun, aka Rambam — is one of Jewish history’s most important and influential figures. A fugitive from Islamic oppression in Spain and Morocco, he became a powerful Jewish leader in Egypt, and personal physician to the Egyptian ruler.

Before commencing the monumental task of codifying the whole range of Jewish law material contained in the Biblical, Talmudic and Gaonic literature, the Rambam composed another work on Jewish law, called Sefer HaMitzvot – The Book of the Commandments. It is a sort of introduction to the Mishneh Torah, but is also a valuable work in its own right and is the second of his three major works on.
