Perkei Avot

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. No prior knowledge is required. Join this Jewish Foundation course for an uplifting five weeks of spring learning.

Limited spaces available.

Cost:
$36 all sessions
