    Thoughtful Wisdom and Inspiration

    This is one of my favorite books. I still have my copy from the mid 1960's. The translation and the text are not politically correct, unlike that which appears at the beginning of the Reform prayerbook "Gates of Prayer." We read the unvarnished wisdom which guided the lives of these founders of Judaism as we know it today.

    The commentary is a bit apologetic at times when dealing with certain phrases (such as not gossiping excessively with women), but it is infused with a tremendous love and respect for the material.

    There is enormous wisdom in this small book and the opportunity to be inspired by life-guiding principles. It isn't necessary to climb distant mountains to find the meaning of life. One can find it, with many options, in this book.

    Best gift book for Bar Mitzvahs

    This is a wonderful illustrated version of Pirke Avot. I have already bought four copies and I now give it as a gift to every Bar Miztvah child I know. Let them all know that: 'You can't judge a book by its cover' and 'A friend in need is a friend indeed.' originated with the great Rabbis.
