The eighth hundred anniversary of the birth of Rabbi Moses Maimonides, medieval philosopher, sage and commentator, will be marked in this country by the publication of material dealing with various phases of his life and work, the newly-formed Maimonides Committee announced yesterday.

The committee also plans to aid in staging exhibits in museums and libraries, in the preparation of programs for schools and organizations, and by encouraging the organization of local celebrations all over the country.

The four honorary chairmen of the committee are Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of the Jewish Theological Seminary; Dr. Julian Morgenstern, president of the Hebrew Union College; Dr. Bernard Revel, president of Yeshiva College, and Dr. Stephen S. Wise, president of the Jewish Institute of Religion.
