Jewish Ethical Wisdom From Pirkei Avot



Jewish Ethical Wisdom From Pirkei Avot is an inspiring Jewish Ethical Treasury.

This is the only Pirkei Avot edition arranged according to topic themes. This is the kind of book in which you say to yourself after reading it, “Why did it take so long for someone to think of doing this?”

Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers) has had centuries of commentaries, but now, for the first time, multiple commentaries on many of its passages are arranged according to topic. This feature makes the book much more user friendly. Furthermore, the wealth of commentaries that Rabbi Elkins has amassed on each topic, including classical, medieval, and modern voices, makes what the original Mishnah says all the more relevant and meaningful.

Rabbi Elkins organizes Avot in an accessible way and provides a wealth of sources from both inside and outside of Jewish tradition to gently guide us to the ethical life.
