Item Description:

Unlike the previous chapters of Pirkei Avos, Chapter 6 deals exclusively with Torah study. While the others address Torah study along with many other desirable character traits, because Chapter 6 is traditionally read on the Shabbos preceding the holiday of Shavous, which celebrates God's gift of the Torah to the Jewish people, its singular focus is thematically appropriate. Emphasizing the trait of learning "l'shmo," Rabbi Wein tells stories of gedolim who embodied it, from the great yet humble Chofetz Chaim to the author of the mishnah, Rabbi Meir himself.
