Open Circle: Pirkei Avot – Ancient Wisdom (8 sessions)
December 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Instructor: Rabbi Mona Strick
Location: Online via Zoom
Pirkei Avot, the Ethics of our Fathers, contains wisdom that has been passed down through the ages. In our class we will explore this unique book of the Mishnah and delve into some of its most well-known passages: What is an argument for the sake of heaven? What should we look for in friendship? What is the definition of happiness? What are we called to do to repair the world? We will read through key passages using traditional and contemporary commentary to expand our conversation.
