Avos DeRabbi Nassan
The teachings of Pirkei Avos through the eyes of the Tannaim
Pirkei Avos is one of the most fascinating and widely studied mishnayos, and Avos DeRabbi Nassan - the ancient baraisa that appears among the Masechtos Ketanos, the Minor Tractates, in the classic Vilna Shas - adds even more depth, color, stories and parables to Avos, as taught by the Tannaim themselves.
Now, this enlightening classic is presented as never before:
- Full text of Avos DeRabbi Nassan, with translation and elucidation
- An extensive commentary culled from Rishonim and Acharonim down to today
- The full text of Pirkei Avos with references to where Avos DeRabbi Nassan discusses a particular teaching or a related concept.
Avos DeRabbi Nassan gives us a fascinating and important look into the wisdom of the Tannaim, and this edition is a handy volume that will greatly enhance the weekly study of Pirkei Avos.
Finally, this vital but often-neglected part of Torah has become more accessible than ever.
