What is Mussar?
Mussar may best be described as “Jewish spiritual ethics” and has been practiced for centuries by people who sought to cultivate and strengthen the qualities of the inner mensch. This is the tenth year that Mussar has been offered at Mount Zion. Come join in small group study as we explore Jewish teachings on humility, patience, honor, and more and discover how we can improve these qualities in our own life. Conversations will be in a safe, supportive, exciting, and collaborative environment. We believe that these sessions will work for those just starting and those familiar with Mussar. There are no pre-requisites and knowledge of Hebrew is not required.
Through group discussion, text study, personal journaling, and spiritual exercises, group members will explore the traits of humility, truth, equanimity, honor, order, responsibility, patience, moderation, and trust. Real-life practices/applications will be offered.
