Reflections on Pirkei Avot: More Than What My Rebbe Taught Me

Hosted By: Jewish Study Center

Pirkei Avot is a collection of approximately 100 teachings by sages between 300 BCE and 200 CE. Many of the teachings deal with ethical behavior, so the collection became known (in English) as Ethics of the Fathers. These teachings became the foundation for ethical movements in Judaism and for subsequent more systematic treatments of Jewish ethics.

Joe Rosenstein’s book differs from other such books by its informal style, relating the teachings to both their historic as well as contemporary contexts, and by pointing our faulty or misinterpreted teachings.
