“Ani Ma’amin – I believe” is a prosaic rendition of Maimonides’ thirteen-point version of the Jewish principles of faith. It is based on his Mishnah commentary to tractate Sanhedrin. The popular version of Ani Ma’amin is of a later date and has some significant differences with Maimonides’ original version. It is of unknown authorship. Both Ani Ma’amin and a poetic version, Yigdal, form part of the prayers of Jews and have inspired varied settings to music.”

“Moses Maimonides (March 28, 1138 Cordoba, Spain – December 13, 1204 Fostat, Egypt), was a rabbi, physician, and philosopher in Andalusia, Morocco and Egypt during the Middle Ages. He was one of the various medieval Jewish philosophers who also influenced the non-Jewish world. Although his copious works on Jewish law and ethics were initially met with opposition during his lifetime, he was posthumously acknowledged to be one of the foremost rabbinical arbiters and philosophers in Jewish history. Today, his works and his views are considered a cornerstone of Jewish thought and study.”
