Welcome to lifelong learning.

Parental Wisdom

in an Era when Children Know it All

Pirke Avot, perhaps the most important of rabbinic texts, contains timeless lessons and wisdom about life.

We will take a tour through this treasure–studying the text on multiple levels and meeting some of the people who helped shape Judaism. We will savor the legacy of advice they left us, as relevant today as 1800 years ago–hoping to make us better people and the world a better place.

No background necessary, texts in Hebrew and English.
