Join this Jewish Foundation course for an uplifting six weeks of spring learning.
The classic Jewish text, Pirkei Avot, is regularly studied in the weeks between Pesach and Shavuot. Part of the Mishnah, Pirkei Avot provides a wonderful insight into the observations and wisdom of some of the great sages of the Jewish tradition.
In 2018, Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz released a brand new commentary on Pirkei Avot, “Pirkei Avot – A Social Justice Commentary”. In this class, Rabbi Schiff will teach Pirkei Avot utilizing Rabbi Yanklowitz’s twenty first century insights.
You will need the book (available online), but no prior knowledge is required.
