Maimonidean Perspectives on Health and the Good Life

Hosted By: Drisha

In a section of Maimonides’ (also known as the Rambam) Mishneh Torah, dealing mostly with ethical and philosophical matters, the Rambam devotes a whole chapter to culinary advice.

In this class, we’ll explore the potential significance of the Rambam’s perplexing advice on eating, and consider how this apparently antiquated advice might still influence how eating and health are understood in contemporary halacha, Jewish law.
