Rabbi Simon Glazer of this city has translated Maimonides’ Mishne Torah into English, which will be published by the Hebrew Publishing Company of New York.

The first two books will be published in one volume, and altogether there will be five volumes to complete the translation. The work will contain the Hebrew text of Maimonides together with Joseph Karo’s annotations and RABD’s criticisms.

This will be the first English translation of this important work.
