PirkeiAvos.net, a new Jewish website featuring the lectures of Irving Bunim, has been launched just in time for High Holidays preparation. The website features audio lectures given by Irving Bunim in the 1960s on Pirkei Avos as well as other topics. The lectures have been carefully remastered using new digital audio techniques only recently available. The lectures are remarkably clear.
Many of these lectures formed the basis of his work on Pirkei Avos entitled, ÂEthics of Sinai.Â ÂEthics of SinaiÂ has become a classic text in Jewish literature and has been reprinted numerous times.
The website makes available the Hebrew and English texts of Pirkei Avos along with the audio streamed lectures. Pirkei Avos.net also makes available both Irving BunimÂs ÂEthics of SinaiÂ as well as a biography of Mr. Bunim, entitled ÂA Fire in His Soul,Â written by his son, Amos Bunim.
Irving BunimÂs name stands out in the annals of twentieth century American Jewry as the foremost lay leader of the orthodox community. He was renowned for his humor and humility, his diligence and devotion and his unflagging support for his fellow Jews the world over. A short biography on Mr. Bunim is available on website as well.
