Maimonides Views Life

Dovid Rosenfeld
Beit Shemesh, Israel


Maimonides is a unique figure in Jewish history in that not only was he a masterful scholar of virtually all areas of Jewish law, but he was also one of the greatest philosophers Judaism (as well as mankind) has ever produced. His monumental work, Mishne Torah ("repetition of the Torah") concerns itself primarily with Jewish law, yet deals with all aspects of Jewish life including philosophy, health and character development. In this class Rabbi Dovid Rosenfeld will study a single section of the Mishne Torah -- the Laws of Understanding (Hilchos De'os), the one section devoted almost exclusively to ethics and character development. In style, it will resemble his Pirkei Avos class, translating a weekly paragraph of Maimonides and expounding upon it, bringing out the beauty and relevance of Maimonides' words.

Dovid Rosenfeld is a native of the Washington D.C. area. He received Rabbinic Ordination from Ner Israel Rabbinical College in 1992, while also holding a Masters in Computer Science from the Johns Hopkins University. He is currently a senior educator in Kollel Bet Zvi in Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel. He is also involved in a project devoted to the writing and dissemination of the Torah lectures of R. Yochanan Zweig. He is the author of Torah.org's highly popular Pirkei Avos Avos class. He resides in Ramat Beit Shemesh, Israel, together with his wife and children.
