Author: Rabbi Nissen Mangel
Publisher: Kehot Publication Society
In 1984, at the suggestion of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, tens of thousands of Jews the world over began following a daily schedule of study of the Rambam's Mishneh Torah and Sefer HaMitzvot. Renewed interest in the life of the Rambam led to the publication of this volume, which coincided with the celebration of his 850th birthday. It brings to light many little-known facts about the Rambam's early years and reveals his far-ranging influence as one of the greatest Jewish leaders of all time.
Includes a glossary, photographs, facsimiles and illustrations.
