Siyum Harambam - Completion of the 41st cycle of Rambam Study

This Wednesday, May 18, 17 Iyar we complete the study of the Rambam's Mishneh Torah for the 41st time. In 1984, the Rebbe introduced the idea of studying the entire Rambam's work of Jewish Law, the Mishnah Torah or his shorter Sefer Hamitzvos (Book of the Commandments) on a daily basis. The new cycle of study begins on Lag Baomer, May 19. This is a great opportunity to join with Jews throughout the world who have a daily dose of Torah study and gain a tremendous amount of knowledge in all areas of Jewish Law. 

The Rambam can be studied on line with options for text, podcasts, more in depth study and much more  here
