The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston’s Maimonides Society is named for perhaps the most famous Jewish physician of all time, Rabbi Moses ben Maimon. Maimonides, also known as Rambam lived in the 10th century. Maimonides' medical works included commentaries on the work of Hippocrates and Galen, and treatises on asthma, impotence, poisons and hemorrhoids. He also wrote an early version of the Physician's Desk Reference. As a scholar, Maimonides was the leading Talmudist of his time.

 

We honor Maimonides’ legacy of linking the values and teachings of Judaism with the practice of medicine. The Jewish Federation of Greater Houston’s Maimonides Society strives to bring our local healthcare community together to support Jewish life.

 

Each year, Maimonides Society members gather together for a memorable night. Our dinners host 300 guests and included speakers like: Rabbi Joseph Telushkin; Broadway actor, Michael Cavanaugh; “The Year of Living Biblically,” Author, AJ Jacobs; Radio Host, Dennis Prager; Comedian, Joel Chasoff; Author and Senior Vice President of the Shalom Center, Daniel Gordis; and most recently, humanitarian, Alan Gross who spoke about his wrongful arrest and imprisonment in Cuba.

 

The Maimonides Society recognizes healthcare workers who make a gift of at least $1,000 to the Federation’s Annual Campaign.  Members 35 and under are required to make an annual contribution of only $500.
