Maimonides and the Merchants

Apr
24

Mark R. Cohen, professor emeritus at Princeton University, will discuss his research comparing business documents found in the Cairo Geniza with Maimonides’ Mishneh Torah. He believes it demonstrates how the language of Talmudic rulings was altered to provide Jewish merchants arranging commercial collaborations or litigating disputes with alternatives to Islamic law and the Islamic judicial system. Sponsored by the UCLA Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies.
