CBA Presents Pirkei Avot Discussion
May 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
CBA welcomes back Joseph Rosenstein, Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Mathematics, Rutgers University, to discuss his new book Reflections on Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers): Not Just What My Rebbe Taught Me.
The discussion will be moderated by Irwin Gelman. All are invited to attend, and it is not necessary to read the book prior to the discussion.
Pirkei Avot, a favorite text of Jews for more than fifty generations, is a collection of sayings by the most distinguished rabbis from 200 BCE to 200 CE. Although there are already numerous translations and commentaries, Dr. Rosenstein presents a personal overview and analysis of the ethical principles contained in the Pirkei Avot.
Those who are interested in purchasing the book can contact Joseph through his website: Joseph G. Rosenstein (rutgers.edu)
