Rabbeinu Yonah on Pirkei Avos - Its HERE!

IT IS HERE! What a great way to prepare for Yom Tov - to go to the printer and collect THE BOOK!

I have translated Rabbeinu Yonah's commentary on Pirkei Avos, which is an essential commentary on Avos, which until now has not been available to the English speaking public. R' Wolbe writes that this is one of the half a dozen classic mussar seforim that everyone should learn.

It is not being released until after the Chag, and at the moment will not be available in stores. But it will be sold through at a special introductory price of $16 (+p&p). If you are interested in purchasing a copy send me an e-mail and I'll make sure to let you know when it is released and help you to get one of the first copies - I'll even sign it for you if you want ;)

If you have ever tried learning the original, you will know that it is not easy to learn, both because there are many different versions of the text (none of which are free of errors) and because his language style is not simple (like all Rishonim).

It is a really beautiful book, as you can see. It is over 400 pages, and makes a really good read (if i say so myself).
