Pirkei Avos (Chapters of the Fathers) is usually called "Ethics of the Fathers." The six chapters of this Talmudic tractate have a special place in the hearts of the Jewish people. The Talmudic Sages called it simply Fathers -- or, better said, parents -- because it is the guide to behavior attitudes, civility, honor, integrity, faith, aspiration, and much more. In short, Pirkei Avos is to the Jewish people what parents are to the Jewish child. One can learn laws and facts from books, but only from parents can one learn how to integrate laws and facts into life. This large format book contains an anthologized commentary and anecdotes. It also includes an overview by Rabbi Nosson Scherman, the General Editor of Mesorah Publications. This edition is bound to become a classic gift for Bar Mitzvah, graduation, weddings or for your family to have in one's home.
