This two-volume set is the most authoritative English translation of Moses Maimonidess Sefer HaMitzvoth (Book of the Commandments). In this, one of his major works, Maimonides explains the basic principles used in determining which precepts were to be included in the taryag (613) mitzvoth, then lists and comments on those commandments. Providing an encyclopedic knowledge of rabbinic literature, this work is a brilliant presentation of the most fundamental teachings of Judaism.
