Rambam Bekius

Religion & Spirituality Podcas

My name is Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss, and this is the podcast for my Rambam Bekius Chavurah at Yeshiva Bnei Torah (YBT). We typically meet four days a week for an hour and learn the writings of the Rambam on a bekius level (i.e. with the aim of covering ground rather than doing an in-depth analysis). Our focus is on the Mishneh Torah, but we will frequently delve into the Sefer ha'Mitzvos, the Peirush ha'Mishnayos, the Moreh ha'Nevuchim, and other writings from the Rambam when our learning takes us there. If you're interested in attaining fluency in the Rambam's Torah, then this is the podcast for you!

Rambam on the Purpose of OTHER Human Beings (Introduction to the Mishnah)

6/8/2023
Have any questions, insights, or feedback? Send me a text! Length: 24 minutes Synopsis: This afternoon (6/8/23), in our last Rambam Bekius mini-shiur (ever?), we read Rambam's answer to the question: "If the purpose of human beings is to perfect ourselves, in knowledge and in action, what is the purpose of all those people who are not involved in perfecting themselves?" After offering our own answers, we read the two-part answer given by the Rambam. Although there are still questions on this entire Rambam we haven't answered, I'm glad we took it up in a bekius fashion.

The Mitzvah to Write a Sefer Torah ... or Buy Books from a Publisher? (Sefer ha'Mitzvos #18)

5/10/2023
Have any questions, insights, or feedback? Send me a text! Length: 26 minutes Synopsis: This afternoon (5/10/23), in our Rambam Bekius mini-shiur, we went on a fun detour (from our already fun detour). We planned to learn about the mitzvos unique to a king, the first of which is to write a second Sefer Torah for himself. First, we had to learn about the mitzvah for EVERY Jewish male to write a Sefer Torah. We started with the Rambam's Sefer ha'Mitzvos, which led us to the Torah Temimah's explanation of the drashah, which led us to the view of the Tur and the Rosh that this mitzvah can be done (or is replaced) by the mitzvah to buy books (perhaps just from the publisher?) which led us to the Aruch ha'Shulchan. Since we didn't finish, the plan tomorrow is to complete the Aruch ha'Shulchan and the Torah Temimah, then go bad to the halachos in the Mishneh Torah. ----- מקורות: רמב"ם - ספר המצוות, עשה י"ח תורה תמימה - דברים לא:יט, הערה 26 טור שולחן ערוך אורח חיים רע:ב ערוך השולחן אורח חיים רע:ז-יא ----- This week's Torah content has been sponsored by Sarah, l'zecher nishmas Drew Leban a"h. ----- If you've gained from what you've learned here, please consider contributing to my Patreon at www.patreon.com/rabbischneeweiss.
