Welcome to Jonathan's pirkei avot Group!
Shalom! I’m Jonathan Posner, PSJC’s rabbinic intern and new member of the Hebrew School faculty. I have the pleasure of leading kitot vav and zayin in tefillah every Wednesday, and I also work with Gesher, our Hebrew high school program. It’s been a joy to learn from and with your students since coming on board at the Hebrew school, and though we're not in the same physical space for now, thanks to modern technology we can still continue our journey together.
For kitah vav specifically, I am teaching a series on the classic rabbinic text, pirkei avot – the Ethics of the Fathers – a collection of Mishna from the 2nd century that is chock full of lessons on how to become a better human being and a Jewish leader. We will continue our exploration of these texts online.
Prior to Hebrew School, please pre-download and print the source packets, and please make sure your child has access to a computer, tablet, or smartphone to join in our lessons.
There is no replacement for being in the classroom, but I’m looking forward to continuing to learn with and to getting to know your children as we explore pirkei avot! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wishing you good health and a peaceful time together with your family,
