Joe Rosenstein discusses his book about Pirkei Avot, the collection of approximately 100 teachings by sages between 300 BCE and 200 CE. Many of the teachings deal with ethical behavior, so the collection became known (in English) as Ethics of the Fathers. These teachings later became the foundation for more systematic treatments of Jewish ethics. 
 
Joe’s book differs from other such books by its informal style, relating the teachings to both their historic as well as contemporary contexts, and by pointing our faulty or misinterpreted teachings.  He also has separate chapters on major themes, such as life after death.
 
Joseph G. Rosenstein was a professor of Mathematics at Rutgers University for 48 years before retiring in 2017. He has published prayer books Siddur Eit Ratzon (for Shabbat and Jewish holidays) and Machzor Eit Ratzon (for the Jewish High Holidays), as well as multiple mathematics textbooks and research articles.  His prayer books have been adopted by over 100 congregations and he has taught courses on Judaism in synagogues and at programs of the National Havurah Committee, which he co-founded.
