Maimonides Society

About

Honoring Maimonides’ legacy of linking the values and teachings of Judaism with the practice of medicine, the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh’s Maimonides Society strives to strengthen our local medical community and our Jewish community through education, volunteerism, and philanthropy. As an honorary society for Jewish health care professionals in the greater Pittsburgh area, the Maimonides Society also seeks to encourage and strengthen the sense of community among its members through social and educational events throughout the year.

Maimonides society members contribute a minimum of $1,800 to the Annual Campaign that fortifies the philanthropic arm of the society.

The Maimonides Society is named for perhaps the most famous Jewish physician of all time, Rabbi Moses ben Maimon. Maimonides, also known as Rambam, was born in Spain in 1135 and died in Egypt in 1204. Maimonides came from a long line of Jewish scholars, and by age 33, he was a renowned Jewish scholar in his own right. Maimonides' medical works included commentaries on the work of Hippocrates and Galen, and treatises on asthma, impotence, poisons and hemorrhoids. He also wrote an early version of the Physician's Desk Reference. As a scholar, Maimonides was the leading Talmudist of his time.
