Pirkei Avos is a treasure trove of timeless teachings from our Sages — teachings of mussar, character development, and advice for refining and honing the soul. What better way to appreciate these teachings than through the lens and perspective of our chassidic leaders?
In Ma'asei Avos, renowned author Rabbi Tal Moshe Zwecker has gathered stories, anecdotes, and parables from the Berditchever, the Tiferes Shlomo, the Kotzker Rebbe, and many others. Using their words and insights, he illuminates the teachings of our sages in a style that is eminently down to earth...yet inspires us to reach for the heavens.
Once again, Rabbi Zwecker has opened the wondrous world of Chassidus to the English-speaking public. Enrich your understanding of Avos with this fundamental and profound work.
Rabbi Tal Moshe Zwecker is the founder and director of Machon Be’er Mayim Chaim Publishing, whose aim is to translate and make available the classics of Chassidus in English. To date, he has translated both Noam Elimelech and Kedushas Levi, as well as Returnity, a collection of essays on teshuvah from the chassidic rebbes.
