Event Details

Some of our intermediate Hebrew students have begun reading Mishnah Avot, or "Ethics of the Fathers", a classic rabbinic text which traditionally serves as an introduction to the Talmud (and is full of quotes you will probably recognize even if you've never read it). We read line by line with the aid of reference materials in order to absorb the language holistically, and discuss the meaning of sayings attributed to the earliest rabbis in this oft-cited key text.
