Maimonides – A Light Unto the Nations: 11 Nissan, 5745 • April 2, 1985

Maimonides is celebrated as a master of Jewish law and philosophy. Not only do we learn from his scholarly writings, but from the life he led as well – a life dedicated to the physical and spiritual welfare of all people.
Maimonides, Lubavitcher Rebbe
Maimonides – A Light Unto the Nations
11 Nissan, 5745 • April 2, 1985
Disc 16, Program 62

Event Date: 11 Iyar 5737 - April 29, 1977

As a physician, his weekdays were spent treating his mostly non-Jewish patients. Only on Shabbos could he devote himself to addressing the Jewish community’s affairs. As a Halachic authority, Maimonides was the only codifier to elucidate the Seven Noahide Laws for all mankind.

Maimonides’ is an inspiring example, who conscientiously fulfilled his own Halachic ruling, that every Jew must promote truth and righteousness to all the nations of the world, bringing them closer to serving G-d, “with one common effort.”
