Special To The Jewish Week

 

 
Maimonides was influenced greatly by the fields of science and philosophy that surrounded him. He possessed a core belief in the importance of learning from those outside of the Jewish community, and immersing himself in the world at-large. His intellectually rigorous interpretations of Jewish text and philosophy have influenced great thinkers in the Jewish and non-Jewish world for centuries.
