Thank you to all those who encouraged me to finally get going with that blog.

Rabbi Maroof,

Is it just me, or are comments disabled on the first post?

No comment?

Excellent first post.

Rabbi Joshua Maroof said...

Took me a while to figure out how to enable comments there...

I just saw your lengthy comment on XGH. I agree with what you said. You might be interested in learning that the same sort of idea was voiced by Zizek againt Levinas, the famous Jewish philosopher.

Rabbi Maroof, Shkoyach! I am a big Rambam fan myself. Am I right that you wrote to me that Mechon Mamre is Orthodox but goes according to a tradition of some Yemenites of only going according to the Rambam?

Rambam System said...

Very nicely said.

Rabbi Joshua Maroof said...

RS, did you mean to respond to the most recent post, the first post, or both?

Rambam System said...

I only see one post,the first one on Rambam- it is a intro to the Yad as a textbook and its introductory two pesukim. Are there others I am missing somehow?

Rambam System said...

Are there going to be postings on the Torah shebichtav that coordinate with the Rambam postings?

Rabbi Joshua Maroof said...

RS, there were really two posts there, although they are a series. One is dated this week, one last week.

I will have to reflect carefully on how to integrate the Torah Shebichtav component.

Rambam System said...

Yes, I see that now. Both are very good. I look forward to experiencing the Torah shebichtav as a platform for Rambam.

Rambam System said...

I would just like to add that as I reread and scrutinize these two piece I find new dimensions I didn't catch on the first reading. This is especially so regarding Avraham Avinu and his liberating vision of Creation.

I highly recommend everyone read reread and scrutinize that passage very caefully. The liberating force of Avrahams vision is the basis of both Torahs, bichtav and baal peh, as well as the relationship between them.
