A primary focus in learning פרקי אבות is for the girls to gain awareness that as fundamental as following the “letter of the law” is, it is not enough.            פרקי אבות is a דרך החיים, a way of life, which polishes our characters into spiritual gems. The girls should develop into “students” of these great אבות, by א”ה internalizing the wisdom, and refinement of character that our אבותhave imparted to us.
