I have become more interested in learning about ethics and morality and thought it might be fun to post some quotes from Pirke Avot. It turns out that this section of the Talmud, which deals with ethical and moral principles, contains no halacha (Jewish religious law). Unfortunately, I have an edition which does not contain any commentary or analysis, so I can only offer my own thoughts. Part 1 offers three simple rules. I wonder if these three rules are really fundamental in some way ? I am not sure these three rules are the most obvious ? Deliberation ? Disciples ? Torah study certainly makes sense though. Look at the high value placed on charity. I like that !!
