PIRKEI AVOT: Chapter 1, Mishnah (Teaching) 12

Importance of education

Hillel taught:

Be a disciple of Aaron – loving peace and pursuing peace, loving your fellow creatures and attracting them to the study of Torah.

This text is about education. So often it is easier to assume we know what we know and we might be an expert in certain fields. Hillel teaches us that our job is to learn from everyone, to act with love towards one another and to help guide each other on a path of lifelong learning.

What type of education will you pursue? How do you continue to pursue learning even after you’re no longer “school-aged”?
