In the name of the LORD, the Everlasting God
--Genesis 21,33

ברוך דיין האמת -- Blessed is the True Judge

With great sadness, we share the news of the passing of our friend and teacher Shelomo ben Avraham, the originator and principal contributor of Mechon Mamre. His kindness and deep knowledge of Rambam's Mishneh Torah inspired many students to follow in his path. He is sorely missed.

Mechon Mamre

Here you will find the Hebrew Bible (Tana"kh) and the RaMBaM's Complete Restatement of the Oral Law (Mishneh Torah):  Together these give God's full guidance for both Jews and Gentiles in all times and places detailing what God expects us to do and not do.  Through the study and observance of these two guides to Torah (God's instructions) we can all live richly rewarding lives and avoid painful errors.  Both our online and offline Bible and Mishneh Torah texts have been carefully prepared, and they are as accurate as found in the very finest printed editions.  (Additional materials are also provided, but they are not the heart of this site.)

We are developing additional online and offline resources for learning Torah.  Although all material on our site is copyrighted freeware, we do hope you will make a donation, if you can.

Since most of the content of this site is available in ZIPs, we ask that you not use a robot to download this whole site:  it is not only unnecessary, but costs us needless outlays for the added load on our server, makes the server slower for others who are online, and it would take years to read the whole site even for speed readers.

We try to answer all real mail within a day or two. The hundreds of letters we get each month have helped us improve the site greatly, and we thank you for your on-going help: God bless you all!
