Quoting from the Goodreads review (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/19067306-pirke-avot), "Berkson looks at the individual sayings, or mishnayot, through the interpretations of the great Jewish commentators and also within the broader context of Western thought—through views found in the Bible, the ancient Greeks, the Enlightenment, Buddhism, Confucianism, and American culture today." Join, reflect and discuss with us.
