eBook The Code of Maimonides (Mishneh Torah): Book 4, The Book of Women (Yale Judaica Series) (Bk.4) download

by Isaac Klein


The fourth book of Maimonides' Code is entitled Sefer Nasim, 'Book of Women, ' and its subject matter corresponds to what is called today family law. In choosing this term, Maimonides followed the Mishnah.

This book should be a must-read at all high schools and colleges to show everybody just how far our society has progressed in terms of the treatment of women. I fear for the women who have to live by the laws in this book. The chapter on jealous husbands and what they can subject their wives to was frightening.

The English translation of Book 4 of Maimonides' Mishneh Torah (Code of Jewish Law) 'the Book of Women,' is another volume in the invaluable Yale Judaica Series. It is the eleventh volume (out of fourteen) of Maimonides' famous code to be translated in this series and like the other volumes it meets the highest critical standards of accuracy and completeness. The translator, Isaac Klein, has performed his task admirably and is to be commended not only for the accuracy of his translations but also for their stylistic merit. Journal of Religious Studies.

The Mishneh Torah, subtitled Sefer Yad ha-Hazaka, is a code of Jewish religious law (Halakha) authored by Maimonides (Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon). The Mishneh Torah was compiled between 1170 and 1180 CE (4930 and 4940 AM), while Maimonides was living in Egypt, and is regarded as Maimonides' magnum opus. Accordingly, later sources simply refer to the work as "Maimon", "Maimonides", or "RaMBaM", although Maimonides composed other works.

From the point of view of method and organization, the Code of Maimonides, written in the twelfth century, is still considered one of the great codes in the history of jurisprudence. The Book of Women, the fourth book in the Code, consists of five treatises dealing with the laws on marriage, divorce, levirate marriage, and Halishah, the virgin maiden, and the wayward woman. Many of these regulations are roughly comparable to modern family law. In compiling the treatises, Maimonides augmented the basic stipulations of the Talmud with subsequent legal developments and included laws that had long been inoperative, among them the penalties for the rape or seduction of a virgin.Talmudic law itself, according to the editor’s introduction, reflects the steady improvement in the status of women in Jewish society. Once virtually a chattel of her father or brother, she gradually acquired the rights of a free person, “practically on a par with the adult male.” Rabbi Klein emphasizes the social assumptions about the meaning and purpose of marriage behind these legal developments, noting the painstaking and critical insight Maimonides brought to his sources.
