Join Rabbi Ruthie Gelfarb at Congregation Har HaShem for a FREE program on a classical Mussar text on Sunday, December 6th from 4:00 -5:30 pm. 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.

At this program, we will read and discuss Israel Salanter’s classic, Iggeres Ha’Mussar. No Hebrew Knowledge Required. Geared to those with previous knowledge of Mussar. Even though this program is free, we ask that you kindly register so we know to expect you. Click here to register.
