Today, more than ever, we need values.
We need wisdom and life lessons and ethical teachings.
Today, more than ever, we need Pirkei Avos.
Pirkei Avos, the Ethics of our Fathers, is the tractate in Mishnah that has helped build untold generations of "mentchen," of fine, balanced, humble and caring Jews. In this fascinating commentary, Rabbi Nosson Muller, menahel of Yeshivas Tiferes Tzvi/Joan Dachs Bais Yaakov in Chicago, author of The Generation to Generation Haggadah, and a much-respected mechanech and public speaker, shows us how to tap into the incredible transformative power of Pirkei Avos to enhance and improve our lives, and the lives of our children.
Rabbi Muller draws upon a large and varied range of sources and stories to bring the wisdom of our Sages into a contemporary focus. He shows us how the words of Pirkei Avos, and the insights of the many commentaries that have been written on it, are amazingly relevant to today's challenges. We see how what can seem to be simple, common sense advice is filled with profound understanding of our humanity --- and of our mission in this world. And we gain vital perspectives on chinuch in an increasingly complex environment.
Even if you have learned Maseches Avos many times, Pirkei Avos: Generation to Generation will unlock the vast treasures waiting to be discovered in the eternally relevant words of our Sages
