The six chapters of the Ethics of the Fathers are
traditionally studied every Shabbat afternoon between
Passover and Rosh Hashanah.
The Hebrew title, Perki Avot, is literally translated as
"Chapters of the Fathers". This whole work is from the
Mishnah and deals with ethical and moral principles.
The reader will find each passage meaningful in
today's world, as it was in the day it was written.
Each facing page in the HPLS version has a
flowing-English translation to help in understanding
the true meaning of the Mishnah.
The Chabad Lubavitch version of the Ethics of the
Fathers combines various verses of Mishnah. A a
cross-reference is provided in the HPLS version to
provide easy correlation to the corresponding verse in
the Chabad siddur.
