Pirke Avot (“Chapters of the Sages”) is the Talmud’s tractate of Rabbinic ethical sayings – filled with of timeless insight about life, learning, community, ritual, spirituality, and more. It is the most accessible book of the Mishnah and a perfect entry point for anyone who wants to delve more deeply into Jewish wisdom.

Over the course of 6 one-hour sessions, we will cover Chapter 1 of Pirke Avot. Each class will consist of a mix of interactive group discussion and chevruta (partner/small-group) learning. A variety of texts and commentaries will be provided. (All texts will be available in English and Hebrew. No Hebrew background necessary.)
