PTS Brotherhood presents: the Ethics of the Sages

Pirke Avot, or the Ethics of the Sages, is one of the most revered books of the Talmud. It contains practical advice and ethical guidance that the Jewish people have followed for centuries.

Pirke Avot is where we are advised, “If I am not for myself, who will be for me?” Community leaders hearken to the saying, “It is not up to you to complete the work, but neither are you free to desist from it.”

For the past year, PTS Brotherhood has sponsored Pirke Avot study with our wonderful Rabbis. We would like to invite you to join us in this conversation. Brotherhood provides the coffee and bagels. The Rabbis provide guidance and learning. You can provide your unique perspective. Pirke Avot study is wonderful, refreshing and nourishing of both body and spirit.

This year, Pirke Avot study takes place in Rabbi Feder’s office, as we sit around the table together, sharing stories and contemplating Jewish ethics. The sessions last for an hour, from 10:00-11:00am on Sunday mornings. All PTS members, men and women, are invited to participate.

The next few Pirke Avot sessions are on November 18, December 9 and December 16. Please mark your calendar now – and join us for this wonderful study group.
