Mussar Study

Sunday, May 19 at noon

In Person ONLY 

The study of mussar can be engaged by anyone, including non-religious Jews, because it focuses on personal ethical conduct, while being rooted in the Jewish textual tradition and contemporary science. We will be engaging the best-selling book Everyday Holiness by Alan Moranis in which, chapter by chapter, he presents Jewish thoughts on particular middot (patience, love, kindness, etc.).

There will be time for one-one and small group learning as well as with the whole group. Clifford Hartman, a retired psychologist with a deep, secular spiritual practice rooted in meditation, will be facilitating the group with support from Rabbi Eli.

See Rabbi Eli’s article in January Sholom Salem newsletter for more information.
