We are a group of active and retired business, government, and military professionals that gather twice a month to drink too-strong coffee and down bagels while we listen to an invited speaker. All with the goal of better understanding our fellow man.
Author William Berkson walks us through his view on Pirke Avot, one of the great contributions of the Jewish tradition to our modern ethical thought. 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."
