Rabbi Dr. Yoggev Publishes Commentary on Pirkei Avot
Beth Tfiloh Congregation's Rabbi Dr. Eli Yoggev has published his first book: a commentary on selected mishnas from Pirkei Avot, the Chapters of Our Fathers.
Rabbi Dr. Yoggev explains: "In March 2020, just a few days into our Covid-19 lockdown in Pikesville, Maryland, Rabbi Chai Posner approached me about writing commentary to the mishna (concise teachings of the oral tradition from the 1st and 2nd century CE) for our community. We were concerned that our members could no longer say Kaddish with a minyan. This was a practical solution: a commentary that could be learned each day in the merit of our members’ loved ones. I chose to write on the mishnas of Pirkei Avot, Chapters of the Fathers."
