About


The Maimonides Society of the Jewish Federation of San Antonio is at the forefront of both philanthropy and service in the Jewish community. The society provides a unique opportunity for healthcare professionals to connect with others who are dedicated to healing the sick and committed to the notion of tikkun olam (repairing the world).

This dynamic group has multiple opportunities throughout the year to participates in activities, including networking, socializing, and educational opportunities.

History


The Maimonides Society is named for perhaps the most famous Jewish physician of all time, Rabbi Moses ben Maimon -- Maimonides -- also known as Rambam. He 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.
