Rosenstein, a Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Mathematics at Rutgers University, is a founding member of New Jersey’s 50+ year-old Highland Park Minyan — a peer-led, egalitarian, post-denominational and inclusive chavurah (prayer group). An expert on Parkei Avot, which translates from Hebrew to “Ethics of the Fathers,” Rosenstein recently published the book “Reflections on Pirkei Avot (Ethics of the Fathers): Not Just What My Rebbe Taught Me.”

His presentation will include the history of Pirkei Avot, the section of the Talmud that deals with ethical values, the major themes of Pirkei Avot, and his process in writing his book.
