Most of us live in the present, are inspired by the past, and look towards our vision of the future. In the forthcoming publication Pirkei Avot: A Social Justice Commentary, Rabbi Shmuly Yanklowitz grapples with the tension between old and new, re-examines our commitment to Tikkun Olam, and explores modern practices within the context of ancient wisdom.
Pirkei Avot was the first recorded manifesto of social justice in Western civilization. This commentary explores the text through a lens of contemporary social justice and moral philosophy, engaging both classical commentators and modern thinkers.
