Jonathan's Little Corner : Torah : Maimonides

Maimonides Page

Some years ago, Immanuel O'Levy posted his own translation of the first book of Maimonides' Mishneh Torah, the Code of Jewish Law: the Book of Knowledge. It is a fundamental work of Jewish philosophy by one of the greatest thinkers in Jewish history. I have not seen this posted elsewhere, but his disclaimer permits it to be reposted. Here it is:

Sefer ham-Madda`
