"From Moshe to Moshe there was nobody like Moshe"...In his lecture, Dr. Ben Tolila discusses the extraordinary personality of the Rambam, and describes his fascinating life story, his medical recommendations, which arouse admiration even in our times, and his activity in all the areas in which he was involved. The Rambam, who lived from 1135-1204, was a man of many interests: an arbiter of halakha (Jewish law), a philosopher, a doctor and a community leader. Thanks to his unique contribution, he is still considered one of the outstanding personalities of both Jewish and world history.
Dr. Yossi Ben Tolila is a graduate of the Department of Jewish History in Bar Ilan University, who lectures in various social contexts about historical personalities. In the lectures he discusses the biographies of the people in light of their times; the circumstances that contributed to their appearance on the stage of history; their thought and activity; and the influence of all these on their generation and future generations. As we know, biographies are of assistance in the study of history, and shed light on the personal, social and political factors, that formed the basis of past events.
