Eternal Ethics: A **New Podcast** on Pirkei Avos

Dear friends, it is with great joy and delight that I present you with my brand new podcast, Eternal Ethics. In this podcast we will journey through the ancient book of Mishna, Pirkei Avos, a book containing God’s wisdom on Ethics and Character development as conveyed at Sinai. But don’t let the title fool you. This will not be a dry analysis of ancient, archaic, or obsolete dicta; Pirkei Avos is replete with insight that is relevant, applicable, and practical in our modern lives. So sit back and learn and enjoy the timeless directives that will improve your live both spiritually and materially.

Eternal

Lech Lecha – (Rebroadcast + New Podcast: Eternal Ethics)

Begining this week, we will, God-willing, upload two weekly Parsha Podcast episodes, the one orginally recorded last year on the whole Parsha and a shorter, orginal one on a specific point on the parsha that I find noteworthy. (Thank you Howard Schreiber for the suggestion.)

Also, I am pleased to announce the launching of a brand new Podcast channel, Eternal Ethics on Pirkei Avos. To SUBSCRIBE to Eternal Ethics please search for Eternal Ethics wherever you get your podcasts from (iOSAndroidStitcher)

Ep. 40: Rabbi Chaim Soloveichik and the Brisker Method of Talmudic Analysis

Rabbi Chaim Soloveichik, the scion of a prestigious rabbinical family, was the father of a new penetrating, incisive, and brilliant approach to Talmudic study and analysis that took the Yeshiva world by storm and is now ubiquitously accepted in the Yeshiva world. In addition to those accomplishments, he was also the paragon of kindness. In this podcast we tell the story of the man, and the method that revolutionized Talmudic study in the yeshiva world.

Human Fallibility and What to do About it (1.1)

The first mishna of Pirkei Avos begins with attributing the first 900 years of the line of transmission of the Torah from Moshe at Sinai until the Men of the Great Assembly. The second sections is three teachings of those great men. What is the connection between these two parts and why was this chosen to be the first mishna of the book?

Introducing a New Podcast on Pirkei Avos (Chapters of the Fathers): Eternal Ethics

Dear friends and listeners, I am pleased to announce the launching of a new podcast on Pirkei Avos, Eternal Ethics. Pirkei Avos is the book of Mishna dedicated to giving us the tools to maximize our life, both spiritually and materially. Remarkably, this ancient wisdom was codified nearly 2,000 years ago yet is relevent and useful today. The reason for that is because these teachings are Eternal Ethics, they are part of the divine Torah that does not change. Join me on a journey through this magisterial book and together we will learn the timeless tools to become great people! In this introductory episode we lay out the plan of how we will go about doing it.

Bereishis – Adam and the Fruit Fly

Welcome to Year 2 of the Parsha Podcast. This year’s cycle will differ from last year’s in that we will only pick an angle or an idea from the parsha but will not give a comprehensive overview of the parsha as we did last year. However, last year’s episode [link HERE] will still be available for downloading and streaming. Please send feedback to rabbiwolbe@gmail.com

This podcast will discuss a fascinating Talmudic teaching as to why Adam was created on Friday and after all the other creatures.

Enveloped by God: Understanding the Festival of Sukkos

The Festival of Sukkos has many moving parts: There is the mitzvah to dwell in a Sukkah for seven days; we are commanded to shake the Four Species on Sukkos; and there is a fascination with the Seventy Nations of the world and their ultimate downfall. In this podcast, we offer a comprehensive perspective of the Festival that also explains its intimate relationship with Yom Kippur and the enigmatic Shmini Atzeres.

Vezos HaBracha – A Torah Retrospect (Speech at Celebration of Completion of the Torah)

Over the past year we have studied the entire Torah, the five books of Moshe. In this podcast, we try to identify the underlying theme that strings throughout the Torah. What is the overarching theme of Torah and what ought we to take away from the experience of studying it?
