Introducing Pirkei Avot Lev Shalem With the publication of Pirkei Avot Lev Shalem, the RA adds a new volume to the Lev Shalem series that will significantly impact our contemporary understanding of this classic ancient text.

In this unique volume, the text is literally surrounded by the voices of two superb commentators - Rabbi Tamar Elad-Appelbaum and Rabbi Gordon Tucker, each deeply learned; each with a unique perspective reflecting the breadth and depth of Conservative/Masorti Judaism. The book's Senior Editor, Rabbi Martin Cohen, not only guided the project at every turn, but he also contributed the English translation of the oldest extant text of Pirke Avot, dating to the 10th or 11th centuries, along with a preface and a commentary on the 6th chapter of the text.

Pirkei Avos has been the subject of hundreds of commentaries throughout the centuries, with the Torah luminaries of each generation contributing their interpretations and explanations, relating the timeless lessons of the Tannaim to the people of their eras and cultures. For Pirkei Avos is nothing less than the repository of moral and spiritual guidance for our nation — it instructs us as to how we should act and live, and what we must strive to become. Every generation has its own unique circumstances and challenges, but the words of Pirkei Avos are as meaningful and essential today as when they were arranged by Rabbeinu HaKadosh.

Rabbi Sholom Reuven Feinstein, the Rosh Yeshivah of Mesivtha Tifereth Jerusalem / Yeshiva of Staten Island, has undertaken the challenge of producing a commentary on Pirkei Avos that speaks to our generation. With his immense breadth of Torah knowledge, along with his signature warmth and straightforward style, he makes the words of Pirkei Avos speak to our lives, and shows us how we can utilize them to become more effective servants of Hashem Yisborach.

This work, translated and adapted from the Hebrew by his grandson and talmid, Rabbi Moshe Weiss, will surely become a favorite resource for those who study and teach Pirkei Avos, and take a worthy place in the library of sefarim on this essential tractate.

Treasures of the Fathers-Osher Avot: Elucidations and Commentaries on Pirkei Avos

More Info

Treasures of the Fathers by Rabbi Aron Asher Wolinetz. The work, an outgrowth of the many years of teaching Pirkei Avos, is written in a simple, pleasing style worthy of its subject. The author, Rabbi Aharon Asher Wolinetz, completed the study of the entire Talmud by the age of fourteen. He developed a deep love for both the study of Torah and the transmission of its thoughts and values. Commentaries on the Chumash, the Book of Ruth on Prayers and Shabbos are among some of his other writings. Rav Aharon's motivation for writing was to fulfill the obligation of "Anyone to whom a Torah idea was revealed, and he has the ability to write it, but fails to do so, it is as if he had stolen it from the one who revealed it to him... Now enhanced with superb English translation, this edition makes a wonderful teaching tool available for those who wish to continue in the great tradition of passing our heritage. The addition of the "Tomer Aharon" glossary, giving short biographies of those scholars mentioned in the Pirkei Avos, makes this work an even more valuable reference book. Hardcover. 406 pages.
