Pirkei Avot (literally, “Chapters of the Fathers,” but generally translated as “Ethics of Our Fathers”) is one of the best-known and most-cited Jewish texts. This collection of pithy sayings and teachings is filled with insights into life and is a key part of Jewish wisdom literature.
Some well-known verses include: “If I am only for myself, who am I? (1:14)” and “Say little and do much (1:15).” “The world stands on three things: Torah, service and acts of loving kindness (1:2) and “You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it (2:21).”
Join Rabbi Rachel Greengrass all summer long on Tuesday nights from 7:00–8:30 pm to study these ancient, yet modern, words of wisdom together.
