Series: Chapters of the Fathers – Pirkei Avot
Published: August 8, 2014 | Revised: April 30, 2021
“Chapters of the Fathers” transliterated from Hebrew as “Pirkei Avot” is often referred to in Jewish life by its other name “Ethics of Our Fathers”.
Capturing the most famous sayings passed down from the time of Moses, this is one of the best-known Jewish texts worldwide. It reveals how the early Jewish fathers applied the newly written Torah to their lives, advice that Jews still widely use today.
Wonder how Jewish family life still thrives in the 21st century? Look no further. Wonder how Jews first learned how to reason from their Hebrew scriptures? Look no further. Simply put, this course will teach you more than just how to “think like a Jew,” it will teach you how to “think like a Jew in your own home.” That’s the difference between academic knowledge, and practical wisdom.
Experience Rabbi Elan Adler’s winsome, compelling style first-hand as he introduces himself, and then introduces to you this foundational text of Jewish life, and then find yourself eagerly anticipating the arrival of each week’s surprisingly refreshing lesson.
