Torah novellae, halachic queries and responsa on Mishneh Torah L’HaRambam by Rabbi Efraim Navon.


The Machaneh Efraim numbers among the prestigious works of Jewish literature and was enthusiastically received and studied both in Ashkenazic and Sephardic communities throughout the Diaspora. It is presently studied extensively in yeshivos as one of the essential works on the Rambam and Nosei Keilim.


Several handwritten notes in Sephardic script on margins.
