9780826601476: Pirkei Avot: Ethics of the Fathers (Memorial Edition)

ANCIENT WISDOM FOR A MODERN TIME Pirkei Avot - Ethics of the Fathers with a new commentary anthologized from the works of the classic commentators and the Chassidic Masters, with a lucid English translation and brief but insight-laden commentaries, this edition of Pirkei Avot is for those who wish to cover a chapter a week during the Omer period and throughout the summer. Most of the commentary consists of elucidations by the classic commentators, and is studded with insights adapted from the teachings of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson. This anthology both explains the simple meaning of the text and reveals the mishnah's deeper layers, presenting it in a manner meaningful to a modern society. The Rabbi Gavriel and Rivkah Holtzberg Memorial Edition is a beautiful hard leatherette bound edition, the complete, expanded version of the 5764 condensed publication. It is enhanced by silver-edged pages, two tone printing, and artwork throughout the text. The original sayings of Pirkei Avot appear in Hebrew, as well as in English.

Review:

>The Pirkei Avot with Commentary elegantly produced by Kehot Publication Society is an invaluable addition to the library of Jewish scholarship. This volume has succeeded in presenting some of the deepest profundities of Torah thought, judiciously selected from a broad range of commentaries, in a succinct and accessible manner. The biographical sketches of the Sages featured in Avot, in addition to the unique insights gleaned from the teachings of the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, will immeasurably enhance the reader`s appreciation of this timeless tractate. --Chief Rabbi Lord Sacks

Featuring a new commentary anthologized from the works of the classic commentators and chasidic masters, Pirkei Avot - Ethics Of The Fathers is crafted especially to guide the layperson to understanding the classic Judaic text. The original Hebrew text and a modern vernacular English translation appear on every two-page spread; to further the reader`s understanding of the tractate, select phrases from the English translation appear at the bottom of the page with a synopsis of scholarly insights from assorted sources. Designed to make obscure concepts and complex philosophic and spiritual principles as accessible as possible, Pirkei Avot - Ethics Of The Fathers is a "must" for novice readers seeking improved comprehension of this tractate. --Midwest Book Review

.. a tribute to the publishers of this excellent volume. Its publication in a large and handsome format is enhanced by the commentary, especially by the late Lubavitcher Rebbe.font> --Rabbi Dr. Norman Lamm, Chancellor Yeshiva University
