Introduction to Mussar

This course was offered in Winter/Spring, 2017.

Mussar is a centuries-old Jewish system of character development that has regained popularity as a spiritual practice in our modern age. Through interactive exercises, text study, contemplative practices, writing and discussion, this class will explore some core middot (virtues, like patience, forgiveness, etc) and provide tools and frameworks to help us deal more effectively with challenging situations we face in our every day lives. By using these tools we will improve our relationships with ourselves and others. All are welcome; no prior experience necessary. Those interested in continuing are encouraged to join the Saturday series Mussar for Modern Life.
