Is there an ethic of friendship? What are the views on ethics of the rabbinic text Pirkei Avot, its Greek antecedents, and its extension in the thought of Maimonides?
In this three-part series, Three Aspects of an Ethic of Friendship, Gordon Tucker explores Jewish texts, traditions, and practices that define our obligations to one another and help us live more meaningful Jewish lives.
