Quick Overview

Written by: Rabbenu David Hanagid - grandson of the Rambam

Translated by: Rabbi Yehoshua Berdugo

Availability: In stock



Midrash David is a fresh take on Pirke Avot, the Ethics of the Fathers, written by the grandson of the esteemed Rambam. As the inheritor of the “Nagid” title from his father, Rabbi Avraham ben HaRambam, Rabbenu David HaNagid provides readers with the historical context of the lives of the Sages who compiled Pirke Avot. Like his grandfather, he codifies topics elegantly; his clear, accessible ideas and life lessons provide a practical guide for readers seeking not only to understand Pirke Avot’s simplistic beauty but to apply its wisdom to their everyday lives.

Now available in English in a newly edited and meticulously researched translation, this magnificent work, written by a hacham from the ancient Andalusian-Spanish tradition, offers modern readers with a brand-new perspective on ancient wisdom steeped in timeless mesorah.
