MishnaMS.jpgCommentary on the Mishnah

Maimonides composed his Mishnah commentary between the ages of twenty-three and thirty, between the years 1145 and 1168. The original title of the commentary was "the Book of the Lamp" "Kitab al-Siraj" in Arabic, occasionally designated as "Sefer Ha-Ma'or" in Hebrew.
