Pirke Avot: The Sayings of the Jewish Fathers by Joseph Gorfinkle

Volunteers outside the USA: Joseph Gorfinkle died in 1950. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies.
Pirkei Avot (Hebrew: פרקי אבות‬) (also spelled as Pirkei Avoth or Pirkei Avos or Pirke Aboth), which translates to English as Chapters of the Fathers, is a compilation of the ethical teachings and maxims passed down to the Rabbis, beginning with Moses and onwards. It is part of didactic Jewish ethical literature. Because of its contents, the name is sometimes given as Ethics of the Fathers. Pirkei Avot consists of the Mishnaic tractate of Avot, the second-to-last tractate in the order of Nezikin in the Mishnah, plus one additional chapter. Avot is unique in that it is the only tractate of the Mishnah dealing solely with ethical and moral principles; there is little or no halacha (laws) found in Pirkei Avot. ( Wikipedia)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/8547
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard


    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

David,

I can MC this for you.

The MW is set up, tested, and started. As a soloist you are also the BC for this project. Since you are a first-time soloist, here are a few links with information about what that means.

On the main Librivox Wiki page (https://wiki.librivox.org/index.php?title=Main_Page) scroll down to the section titled BC.

First Time login to Workflow

Workflow instructions for BC's and DPL's:

Also in the wiki: http://wiki.librivox.org/index.php/BC%27s:_How_to_update_the_Magic_Window

If you run into to any road blocks or have questions, please ask.

Great! Thank you. Can you move this to the "Going solo" Forum? I am not sure how to do so.

Best,
David Daniel

David D,

I am planning on leaving this in the Launch Pad for a few days in hopes of attracting a DPL to the project. There is a slightly better chance of getting noticed here than in the crowded "Going Solo" area. When we get a DPL or after a few days if we don't get one, I will move this to "Going Solo"; as a BC, you don't have software permissions to move a forum topic.
