Rabbeinu Yonah, a name that evokes awe and reverence among Jews the world over, was one of the greatest Talmudic scholars and ethical personalities in Jewish history. He was the teacher of the Rashba (Rabbi Shlomo ben Aderet) and is quoted several times in the Tosafos commentary on the Talmud. His ethical works, Sha’arei Teshuvah and Sefer HaYirah, have inspired countless Jews throughout the centuries.
Although commentaries on Pirkei Avos abound, Rabbeinu Yonah’s is one of the most popular and oft-quoted. Until now, it had gone untranslated, but that omission has now been rectified. Let Rabbeinu Yonah reveal the profound wisdom of our Sages, and be uplifted and transformed. This volume is a precious gift from a beloved teacher to the Jewish people, and it belongs in every Jewish home.
