Learn more about Rabbi Moses Schorr, a noted academic who dedicated his time and energy to the Jewish people and the Jewish community in pre-war Europe.

Of the many beautiful adages found in the second chapter of Pirkei Avot, Ethics of the Fathers, that we study this coming Shabbat, we’d like to highlight two essential characteristics necessary to be a successful Jewish communal leader. “And all who labor with the community, should labor with them for the sake of Heaven” and “…It is not your duty to finish the work, but neither are you at liberty to neglect it.” With the understanding that they will not necessarily be able to address each and every challenge that the Jewish community faces, individuals like Rabbi Schorr stepped forward and did what they could, and thereby, set the stage for others to follow.

To learn more and appreciate the breadth of wisdom contained in the Torah, print out the second chapter of Ethics of the Fathers this afternoon before Shabbat and join thousands of fellow Jews around the globe who will be enjoying an uplifting experience and inspired discussions this Shabbat.
