Pirkei Avot Learning Series
Thursday, May 23, 2019 @ 9:00 AM - 10:15 AM
An event every week that begins at 9:00 AM on Thursday, repeating until Friday, June 7, 2019
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.
