#YesodeiHatora
1:11 God has no body, form; no connection, separation, place or measure. Not in time; no start or end. No change.
2:9 All existence aside from God, from influence of God’s truth. God knows everything, nothing hidden from Him.
3:9 Stars & spheres have soul, knowledge, intellect. Alive & recognize God. Know less than angels, more than men.
4:9 Soul isn’t of elements. Body dies, decomposes, soul remains. Knows things above matter, God, exists forever.
5:5 Gentiles tell group of Jews: “Give us one of you to kill, or we kill you all,” allow selves to be killed.
6:2 7 names of God: YHVH (also ADNY), El, Elo’ah, Elohim, Elohai, Shaddai, Tzvaot. Erase even 1 letter, lashed.

 

 

 

 

[old attempt]

Besides the popular Daf Yomi, the daily learning of a folio of the Babylonian Talmud, there are a variety of other daily study schedules. Another one that is gaining popularity in Israel now is the daily study of Maimonides’ magnum opus, the Mishnah Torah. The Rambam Yomi as it’s called involves the study of one chapter a day and completes the entire book in approximately three years. In many senses study of the Rambam is faster and easier. The Mishnah Torah is written in Hebrew which is typically easier than the Aramaic of the Talmud (and there are links to English translations below), furthermore each chapter is generally shorter and more concise than a folio of Talmud.
