The class will culminate with a festive Bat/Bar Mitzvah Community Ceremony.
Check in and Mussar
Each Shabbat from 8:50 AM - 9:45 AM (before services), our participants check in to share the highlights of their week. Then we explore Mussar in depth using a range of texts from the Jewish Canon. These experiences have inspired new ways of exploring our teachings through the ages.
Mussar (also spelled Musar), a Jewish spiritual practice that gives concrete instructions on how to live a meaningful and ethical life, arose as a response to this concern. Mussar is virtue-based ethics — based on the idea that by cultivating inner virtues, we improve ourselves. This is in contrast to most Jewish ethical teachings, which are rule-based. Today many are attracted to Mussar because it offers opportunities for personal growth through a Jewish lens.
