If you enjoy studying philosophy, explore works by Jewish philosophers such as Rav Saadia Gaon and Rabbi Moses ben Maimon.

Rav Saadia Gaon took on the Karaites as their movement ran counter to a primary Jewish belief that the oral traditions are an essential part of the Divine law. In the 17th Mishnah of the fifth chapter of Pirkei Avot, Ethics of the Fathers, we are taught that throughout the generations, there have been many debates and disagreements. Those that have taken place for the sake of Heaven have had constructive outcomes and have endured, while those that were not for the sake of Heaven did not have constructive outcomes and did not endure.

To learn more and broaden your ethical horizons, print out the fifth chapter of Ethics of the Fathers on Friday afternoon and join thousands of fellow Jews around the globe who will be enjoying an uplifting experience and inspired discussions this Shabbat.
