The Chai Times #79 // Become a Wise Jew in 20 Minutes

Apr 21, 2023 9:16 pm



This Shabbat thousands of Jews worldwide will complete a study cycle that is the perfect shot and chaser of Jewish Wisdom.

Mishne Torah, otherwise known as the Rambam, after the author Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, Maimonides, is a 14-volume set that codifies all Jewish law. Covers everything from philosophy to purity to Temple to business ethics to Lending.

In fact, in his intro, Maimonides promises that if you study the Torah text, the 5 Books of Moses, and his book you have covered ALL of Torah.

On Shabbat we complete the study cycle and on Sunday we restart anew. JOIN IN!

It's a 20-minute daily study routine you can do by podcast and in 3 years you will be FULLY WISDOMED UP. A WISE JEW
