Pirkei Avot Chapter 5

Pirkei Avot (“The Ethics of Our Fathers”) is one of the best known and most cited of Jewish texts. This beloved tractate of the Mishna composed of ethical maxims of the Rabbis is familiar for such maxims as “If I am only for myself, who am I?” (1:14) and “Say little and do much” (1:15). Join Rabbi Chaim Brovender for a journey through this classic work of Jewish wisdom.
