ABOUT THE BOOK

Ethics of our Fathers is a book much loved by Jews around the world, especially during Shabbat. Written approximately 2,000 years ago, it is a collection and compilation made by Rabbi Yehudah HaNassi. Without being a book of laws, it is part of the Mishnah and is composed of phrases or short lessons from our Sages. Ideas so we can live a good Jewish life.

Like the Mishnah in general, Pirke Avot also quickly required rabbinic commentary so that Jews in general would understand and benefit from its teachings. Therefore, without modifying Pirke Avot's original text, with each generation it is necessary to update the text's explanations. In clear language, and adapted to the circumstances of the generation in question.

This is the purpose of this edition. Discussed and studied in the right way, Pirke Avot remains the same... renewing itself in the soul of every Jew.

This is the ambition of Rabbi Ovadia Tank, whose versatile training allows him to make the old Pirke Avot shine, in the eyes of this generation that is often far from books and studies, preferring social networks and technology in general.
