The Wisdom of our Sages (Pirke Avot) is one of the great works of Jewish literature. In it can be found such pearls as Hillel's famous statement: "If I am not for me, who will be? If I am only for me, what am I? And if not now, when?".

Inspired by a recently published commentary by two exciting and creative modern rabbis (Gordon Tucker and Tamar Elad-Applebaum), we will explore the sayings and new commentary in this collection together, to reflect on our own experience as Jews in the 21st century. All are welcome - no previous knowledge required. No book purchase is necessary.
