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.
