Mussar Class

Mussar Class – Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m.

Mussar is a long-standing tradition of Jewish ethics with a particular focus on character formation.  Join Rabbi Sobo to explore selections from the Mussar tradition, in text and in practice.  The goal of the class is to not only take a more academic approach to Jewish ethics and ethical literature, but also to use some of the techniques of the Mussar Movement (and modern form of Mussar study) to deepen our own understanding of ourselves and push to live up to the best that is within each one of us.  All are welcome, absolutely no previous knowledge or experience required.  We’ll meet for an hour, beginning January 9.  Feel free to bring dinner and/or a snack with you.
