Ani Ma'amin Maimonides, the Rambam Maimonides the Rambam Hebrew This Hebrew song, written in the Twelfth Century, is by Rabbi Moses Ben Maimon, also known as Maimonides, who was a great religious philosopher. His Talmudic Psalm Number Twelve from The Articles of Faith, entitled, "Ani Ma'amin," (I Believe) was later sung by many Jews during the Holocaust, even as they entered the gas chambers. Maimonides' descendants clung to his words for hope for the future and for humankind. In real audio: http://www.modzitz.org/media/animaamin.ram
