Mussar Program

JEWISH SPIRITUALITY FOR

THE MODERN WORLD

 

Join the growing number of Jews who are finding mussar meaningful as a practical discipline to uncovering individual holiness. Literally defined as correction, instruction or ethics, “mussar means working on yourself—but not for the sake of yourself,” says Alan Morinis, the 67-year-old dean and founder of The Mussar Institute, which advances the study and practice of mussar  throughout the world. In this popular 13 week course, members meet together as a Va’ad (group) and with a chavruta (learning partner) as we learn how to make more and better informed choices on how to interact with others and our world. The course is suitable for all levels of participants. Please consider committing to all 13 weeks of this course.

The individual cost of the Mussar program offered through the Center for Contemporary Mussar is being partially underwritten by anonymous donations. 

Registration will be limited and on a first-come first served basis and we will meet on mutually agreed upon dates and time. If interested or if you have any questions, please contact Rabbi Roni Handler at rhandler@btbj.org
