Season of Mussar Returns

TBD member Barbara Grosh will be facilitating this course, which was popular at TBD a couple of years ago. There is still time to sign up.


Season of Mussar 1

Mussar is an ancient Jewish tradition of spiritual growth. Mussar (unlike Kabbalah) is focused on spiritual growth in the midst of our busy involved lives, embedded amongst our families, co-workers and neighbors. The purpose of studying Mussar is to become a better person, more of a mensch. In Mussar, we study character traits (middot) such as humility, patience, gratitude, honor, and alacrity and try on practices to improve our character traits one at a time. Readings come from The Mussar Institute. Participants will discuss and keep journals of their experience with each Middah.
