The Israel Museum is now presenting an excellent exhibit called “Maimonides: A Legacy in Script.” It features some magnificent illuminated manuscripts gathered together from museums all over the world as well as displays that explain the work and significance of Moshe ben Maimon, the Rambam. It is well worth a visit and also offers an accompanying book that contains valuable insights into his importance.
