  • In his Iggeret Maimonides shares his inner torment as he sought to balance his study of Jewish tradition with his engagement in worldly wisdom and philosophy.

  • Written in a style that will engage both scholars and non-scholars.

  • Did Maimonides the philosopher and legal scholar also compose poetic works?

  • Exciting research which develops its conclusions from a rich variety of sources.
