The monumental classic commentary on Pirkei Avos, newly translated into English
Avos D'Rebbi Nosson richly elaborates on the teachings of Tractate Avos, providing a veritable treasure trove of profound ethical insights, fascinating anecdotes about the great Sages, and a wellspring of inspiring moral teachings. It illuminates the Torah way of life by presenting role models and offering poignant observations.
This monumental classic offers a gentle prod to refine our character traits and improve our moral conduct. It presents numerous sayings of the Sages that are not mentioned anywhere else in the Gemara or Midrash.
While the authorship of this great work is unclear, it is generally attributed to the Tanna Rabbi Nosson HaBavli, teacher of Rabbi Eliezer, Rabbi Tarfon, and Rabbi Yishmael.
This wonderful translation by Rabb Avraaham Yaakov Finkel opens up this great work to English speakers everywhere. It is compiled from a recent two-volume version published by Yeshivath Beth Moshe in Scranton, PA. This edition presents the entire work complete in one volume.
