Pirkei Avot Classes


Sunday Mornings, 11:15 – 12:15
By Rabbi Ethan Seidel

May 8, 15, 22, 29; June 5


Imagine a scrapbook containing 400 years worth of wisdom from the leaders of each generation of Jews and you come close to grasping just what Pirkei Avot represents. From Shimon HaTzaddik in 200 BCE to Yehuda HaNasi in 200 CE, Pirkei Avot relates wisdom from multiple generations to the rabbis who crafted the foundations of Jewish Law as it exists today. This spring, Rabbi Seidel will teach sections of Pirkei Avot on Sunday mornings between Pesach and Shavuot. Please note that the texts will be read in translation, there is no experience necessary, and while weekly attendance is encouraged, it is not essential to being part of the discussion.
