Pirkei Avot (the “Ethics of the Fathers”) is the ancient Jewish code of ethics and good conduct. Jews have loved and learned Avot for nearly 2,000 years—but has it lost its immediacy and relevance in the world of social media and high-tech innovation, a world that faces the ongoing challenges of a new social revolution?
This three-volume work re-examines the guidance of the early Jewish sages and projects it onto the canvas of life as we live it in the 21st century. Analysis of each teaching comes with a set of Discussion Points for personal reflection and shared debate. Read this book and you will discover that Avot is truly a workable and practical lifestyle manual for today.
