A description of this lecture from http://jewishhistory.org/: Doctor, mathematician, philosopher, and Torah scholar, Maimonides is an unparalleled genius in Jewish thought. Yet his prolific work raised terrible controversy; his books were even burned. Hear about his life and times, and discover why it is said of him: "From Moses to Moses there arose none like Moses."

7. Rabbi Yehuda Halevy - Kuzari [Added August 2, 2007]
by Rabbi Berel Wein

A description of this lecture from http://jewishhistory.org/: "What heart is to the body, the Jewish people are to the world," wrote Rabbi Yehuda Halevy, author of the Kuzari. This philosophical work is almost like a novel; it is written as a debate between a Christian, Moslem, and Jew who are presenting the relative merits of their religions before the 8th century king of the Khazars. Between "the king's" relentless questions and the Jew's meticulous answers emerges a picture of a religion of joy, accomplishment, and universal love of mankind.

The Code of Jewish Law [Added August 5, 2007]
by Rabbi Berel Wein
Lecture is approx. 55 minutes.
Click here to access the file to stream or download

A description of this lecture from http://jewishhistory.org/: Skip the esoterics; let's have the bottom line. The Code of Jewish Law is the authoritative guide to correct Jewish behavior from the cradle to the grave, from the public sphere to the privacy of home. The complex scholarship that went into codifying this immortal work and the encyclopedic works it has since spawned is unraveled in this tape.
