The code of Maimonides (1138–1204) is one of the most famous and important writings in Hebrew since the Bible. This masterful translation of the second book of the code, The Book of Love, deals primarily with laws concerning the worship of God. Menachem Kellner offers the first translation based upon the manuscript approved by Maimonides himself, accompanied by annotations and a helpful introduction.
Published on the 800th anniversary of the author’s death, this volume joins thirteen previously translated volumes of Maimonides’ code in the Yale Judaica Series. Together these books provide access not only to a great medieval mind but also to the mind of the whole Jewish legal system.

Menachem Kellner is Wolfson Professor of Jewish Thought at the University of Haifa, Haifa, Israel.
