“About Mechon Mamre and Our Work” - Source: http://mechon-mamre.org/about.htm

"Mechon Mamre" is Hebrew for "the Mamre Institute".  Mamre is a place name for the place where Abraham our patriarch lived (see Genesis 13,18).  Abraham is the forefather of both Jews and Gentiles who live by the instructions of God, and our site is intended for Jew and Gentile alike.  Mechon Mamre is a small group of observant Jewish Torah scholars in Israel who live by the plain and simple meaning of the RaMBaM's Mishneh Torah and actively encourage others to do so.  Most of us belong to the mainstream "Baladi" Yemenite Jewish community, continuing the tradition of living by the Mishneh Torah since the very days when the RaMBaM lived, and are students of the Rav Yosef ben-Dawid QaafiH zS"l (the leading rabbinical expert in recent generations on the teachings of the RaMBaM in general and on his Mishneh Torah in particular). . . .
