“Love peace and pursue peace.”

After a bit of a hiatus I’m glad to be continuing this series of short videos on Pirkei Avot, the ‘Chapters of the Fathers.’ In chapter 1, line 12 we are introduced to the great rabbinic leaders Hillel and Shammai, and begin to see their different approaches, including the famous admonition to be like Aaron and ‘pursue peace.’ You can find the whole series and sign up to get weekly updates of newly uploaded videos HERE.
