Did you ever want to know where those rabbis came up six hundred and thirteen mitzvot? Maimonides certainly did, and wrote them down in his Sefer HaMitzvot (book of Mitzvahs). In this mini-course, we will look in depth at some of the most important mitzvot in Judaism through Maimonides’ work and those of later commentators with different opinions.
What? You have somewhere to be during the day that’s not at Temple? You’re at work, or on vacation? Well, this course is just for you, as it will be by internet (Zoom) or phone. Materials will be provided one day in advance via email by Rabbi Vaisberg.
