Through ‘The Daily Rambam’ learning schedule, founded by the Lubavitcher Rebbe, tens of thousands of Jews around the globe are learning the Rambam’s Mishneh Torah (Yad HaChazaka) gaining a comprehensive overview of all the Torah’s laws. This can be achieved in one year by learning 3 chapters a day or in 3 years by learning one chapter a day. There is also a third option to learn Sefer Hamitzvos (Rambam’s listing of the 613 Mitzvos with a small explanation for each Mitzvah). This schedule allows people who can’t do 1 chapter or 3 chapters per day, to learn just the Mitzvos relating to the 3 chapters per day group. The Rebbe visualised, that in this way, all men, women and children could all be united in learning Rambam (halachah), and in this way cover kol Hatorah kulah, every year (or every 3 years) together.

Sefer Hamitzvot highlights only the 613 Scriptural Mitzvot of Rambam’s Mishneh Torah. Both our Comprehensive Summary, and Concise Summary can be used to fulfil this purpose, of learning just the current Mitzvot, of either the 1-Chapter-a-Day, or the 3-Chapter-a-Day Cycles of world-wide learning.
Sometimes the Rambam describes one or more Mitzvot within a chapter. Sometimes he could describe one Mitzvah over many chapters.
In both Comprehensive, and Concise Summaries, we have summarised each of the 1000 chapters of Mishneh Torah, and we have marked every one of the 613 Mitzvot with a Torah icon.
They are therefore visible in the chapter where the Rambam has placed them. Therefore, whether one is looking at the 1-Chapter-per-Day Cycle, or the 3-Chapters-per-Day Cycle, the reader can follow which of the current Mitzvot, is or are being discussed.
