Rabbi Ovadiah Sforno was one of the glories of 15th & 16th Century Italian Jewry, a community that produced Torah luminaries far out of proportion to its size. His commentary on Pirkei Avos (Ethics of the Fathers) is one of his little known gems. This masterpiece is in the original Hebrew with an exceptional translation and commentary.

He speaks eloquently to our generation, writing in the introduction to his classic commentary on the Torah: "because our people dwell in an alien land and concentrate their efforts on the accumulation of wealth, feeling that this will protect them from the exigencies of their time. This in turn results in a condition where they have no proper time to consider the wonders and wisdom of our Torah, and even brings them to question the importance of our holy Torah, becoming critical of its teachings, for they do not understand it properly." Translation and commentary by Rabbi Raphael Pelcovitz, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation Knesseth Israel in Far Rockaway, New York.
