Man of the Millennium: A Biographical Sketch of Maimonides

“From Moshe till Moshe no one arose like Moshe”

This epithet which is engraved on the tombstone of Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon, the Rambam, sheds light on the enormity of his impact and influence upon the Jewish people. The mere claim that the Rambam’s contributions and leadership was surpassed only by Moshe Rabbeinu is a testament to his remarkable accomplishments. In this talk we attempt to capture a flavor of who Maimonides was and what he represented, but more importantly we analyze his mind-boggling literary accomplishments and examine their pivotal role in continuing the process of uninterrupted and accurate transmission of the Torah throughout the generations.
