New Episode Added Every Wednesday Exclusively on ChaiFlicks! | A journey through the life, philosophy, and mystery surrounding Rabbi Moshe Ben Maimon — or as he is known in English — Maimonides. Born in 12th century Cordoba, Spain, Maimonides is responsible for some of the text and interpretations of Jewish law that define the community's way of life to this day. And still, much of his life has remained a mystery.
What were his influences? In what language did he speak and think? What were the events that shaped his life? Above all, what remains of his perceptions in present-day Judaism? Documentary filmmaker Uri Rosenwaks ("Kingdoms") takes us on a transcontinental journey to discover the world of Maimonides.
