Shabbat, 17 Tishrei 5778 / October 7, 2017
The Mishneh Torah was the Rambam's (Rabbi Moses ben Maimon) magnum opus, a work spanning hundreds of chapters and describing all of the laws mentioned in the Torah. To this day it is the only work that details all of Jewish observance, including those laws which are only applicable when the Holy Temple is in place. Participating in the one of the annual study cycles of these laws (3 chapters/day, 1 chapter/day, or Sefer Hamitzvot) is a way we can play a small but essential part in rebuilding the final Temple.

Positive Commandment 11 (Digest)
Studying and Teaching Torah

"And you shall teach them diligently to your children"Deuteronomy 6:7.

We are commanded to study and teach Torah to our students, whom the Torah refers to as our "children." We are instructed to study Torah to the extent that we are proficient in its teachings, and ready to answer without hesitation questions on that which we studied.


Translation of (the unabridged text of) Sefer Hamitzvot by Rabbi Berel Bell, member of the Rabbinical Court of Montreal and director of Teacher Training for the Jewish Learning Institute.

From "Sefer Hamitzvot in English," published by Sichos in English.

In youth, one learns to talk; in maturity, one learns to be silent. This is man's problem: that he learns to talk before he learns to be silent
