Over the last decade, Ofeq Institute has published both versions of Mesillat Yesharim, the Dialogue and the Thematic, in twin editions. For although the two versions share the same content, they each supplement elements missing in the other. Of pivotal importance are the added chapters at the beginning of the Dialogue Version. These shed light on the profound nature of the work as a whole. It has now become common practice to study the two versions together, for the Dialogue Version reveals the brilliance of Mesillat Yesharim for all who seek to deepen their understanding of it. With this new translation of the two versions and the accompanying commentary, this publication is destined to have an even broader and more far-reaching impact on the religious life of our people.

This amazing book exemplifies Jewish ethics as no other book does. I was quite secular when I started to read this book. After reading it several times, as one should, my outlook on Judaism, ethics and morality has changed beyond recognition. I can truly say I'm a different person.
