Description

Lecture given on a bus. Discusion of the Rambam, born in Cordoba. Why did the Rambam have some very indefensible opinions? Why do we call the Mishneh Torah the Yad Hachazaka? All talmedei chachamim should learn Moreh Nevuchim. When is it permitted to use a shabbos clock? One can learn from every word in the Rambam's works, and even from what he did not write. What did the Rambam include in taryag mitzvot? The Rambam only rarely cited a machlokes, in the mishne torah. Occasionally, the Rambam added words in the mishne torah, to refute the Karaites, who were causing trouble in his time. He wrote a letter to Yemen, and to Ovadiya the ger. The Rambam abolished chazaras hashatz, due to excessive talking in shule. Why ordain Rabbis to give lashes
