Mussar: A Jewish Path for Personal Development and Emotional Wellness

Tuesdays at 7pm

Join Rabbi Kinberg for 8 weeks of self-assessment, deconstruction, reconstruction, reflecting, and renewal through the lens of Jewish values and wisdom as we journey through the teachings of Mussar. 

Mussar became a movement in the early nineteenth century under the leadership of Rabbi Israel Salanter. Salanter was concerned that the yeshivot of his time were training Torah scholars who were devoid of menschlikheit, or, of good decent character. He wanted Torah learning to be applied to character development so that students might become wise and compassionate, not merely learned. More on What is Mussar?

The Jewish virtues (middah) we will study and engage with this year are:

            7/1       Chesed/Kindness

            7/8       Savlanut/Patience

            7/15     Spiritual Friendship/Chevruta

            7/22     Seder/Order

            7/29     Bitachon/Trustworthiness

            8/5       Anavah/Humility

            8/12     Hodaah/Gratitude

            8/19    Teshuva/Home Coming

            9/4       Selichot/Forgiveness and Apology 

In person, community selichot prayers, song and study. Class participants invited to help lead 7-9 PM.
