Pirkei Avot


The "Chapters (or Ethics) of the Fathers" were compiled from Rabbinic Jewish tradition dating to a couple of centuries before and after the birth of Jesus.

  • A summary of some of the teachings in its five short chapters reads like a modern self-help book:
    • be kind
    • respect the rights of others 
    • strive for greatness
    • seek peace
    • avoid transgression
    • be humble
    • combine scripture learning with labor
    • be careful with speech
    • do not judge
    • the time for action is now
    • be patient
