Rambam – Sefer HaMitzvos
The daily study of Rambam’s Sefer Hamitzvos, was instituted by the Lubavitcher Rebbe in 5744 (1984), as one of three possible tracks (levels) of studying the laws of the entire Torah, so that every Jewish person could participate at some level.

How it is done
One learns the Biblical commandments from the Rambam’s Sefer Hamitzvos. These Mitzvos are not learned in order, rather, every day one learns the Mitzvos which correspond the Mitzvos that are being learned that day in the 3 Chapters a day track.
Occasionally, it will be a portion of a unique addition of the Rambam, such as the Rambam’s liturgy of Prayer or the discussion of Rabbinical commandments. It is therefore advisable to follow the study cycle with a study guide (Moreh Shiur) so that you maintain a correct pattern.
