Pirkei Avot Class

Pirke Avot has been called the “urtext of practical Jewish wisdom.”  These ancient teachings from the great sages of our tradition are looked at in a new way in the book Pirkei Avot, A Social Justice Commentary by Rabbi Dr. Shmuly Yanklowitz.  In this class, we will use Yanklowitz’s book and its vast resources of commentaries, ancient and modern, as a lens to see the world around us and the great issues of our day.  To listen to the author talk about the book, click here.

The class will be held on the second and fourth Tuesday evenings from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. beginning February  11, 2020. It will run through May and is taught by Rabbi Feingold.

Click here to register by February 4 and acquire your own copy of the book online at CCAR Press or Amazon. Also available at Kindle, Apple Books and Google Play.
