Updated free translation of Pirkei Avos

The indefatigable Reuven Brauner has updated his Pirkei Avos translation here. I should have published this earlier, just after Pesach but … it’s never too late. More can be found on halacha.com

In his words:

I am pleased to inform you of the availability of my new updated, revised version of Pirkei Avos wherein I have included the complete Hebrew text of the Perek and my translation thereof. Although the “synthesized” Perush is about the same as in the earlier version, I have now added important footnotes based on the commentary of Prof. Hanoch Albeck in his commentary on Mishna, which I found to be to succinct and enlightening, very much in step with the rest of this work.

The new Pirkei Avos is now more useful and user-friendly, and looks wonderful when printed out. If anyone wants the Word version, I will be happy to send it to you. It has a very nice page background which is aesthetically pleasing on the screen, and in print. I hope you like what I have done.

This is really right for these days between Pesach and Shavuous, too. Great to read to the kids at the Shabbos table.

Anyway, enjoy and let me know what you think of it. – and please pass this email on to your friends…………

Kol Tuv and B’hatzlocha,

I've enjoyed being a computer science professor in Melbourne, Australia, as well as band leader/singer for the Schnapps Band. My high schooling was in Chabad and I continued at Yeshivat Kerem B'Yavneh in Israel and later in life at Machon L'Hora'ah, Yeshivas Halichos Olam.
