Item Description:

The second Mishnah of Pirkei Avos, the teaching of the great Shimon Ha Tzaddik, names the three pillars on which the world stands: Torah study, service to God, and acts of kindness. First phrased in this form at the dawning of Ancient Greece, Rabbi Wein presents these principles in contradistinction to the baseness and cruelty of Greek society. Moreover, he shows how the teachings that follow Shimon Ha Tzaddik's all give practical advice as to how Jews can actualize the three pillars in our daily lives.
