Rabbis, educators, and longtime colleagues, Kerry M. Olitzky and Leonard S. Kravitz have together produced a series of modern commentaries on fundamental Jewish texts. Each of these editions features a linebyline translation coupled with the original text and commentary, breathing new life into traditional rabbinic readings. Each also contains essays and gleanings that draw upon the works of other scholars to better enhance the reader’s understanding of the subject. This series is a wonderful addition to your Jewish library, whether you are approaching the texts for the first time or the hundredth time. It is suited for both individual reflection and class study. This edition of Pirke Avot presents a fresh, new approach to a Jewish classic.
