From Torah commentator to physician, mystic to critic, philosopher to believer, Rabbi Moshe, son of Nachman was born in 1194 in Spain. Nachmanides was a critical link in the transmission of ancient mystical wisdom to the modern era. His contributions cover every area of scholarship, distinguished both in the legal dimension and the esoteric one. His major commentary on the Bible – mandatory study today – is multi-dimensional, weaving the “wisdom of the truth” (mysticism) into understanding the Bible. The Ramban was a leader involved in all public matters of his day. He shrugged off this mortal coil in 1270.
