Introduction to Mussar: Jewish Soul Work

Har_HaShem_star_plus_wordsLet Rabbi Ruthie Gelfarb of Congregation Har HaShem guide you in your learning about Mussar. From its origins in the 10th century, Mussar was a practice of the solitary seeker, until it became the basis for a popular social/spiritual movement originating in 19th-century Lithuania, inspired by the leadership of Rabbi Israel Salantar. Today, there is a popular revival and interest in Mussar/Tikkun Middot. In this class, we will study the Mussar writings of R. Israel Salantar (Iggeres Ha’Mussar), Moses Maimonides (Hilchot De’ot) and R. Ira Stone (A Responsible Life). We will use Mussar practices within our class community to support each other in growing our wisdom and our capacity for responding to this complex world as ethical, awake, Jews.

Monday, October 27, 6:30-8pm at Congregation Har HaShem
