Mussar is a Jewish path of contemplative practices and exercises that have evolved over the past thousand years.  Through Mussar, each individual works on their own personal self-directed curriculum in an effort to practice the way they want to be in the world.

Living a Jewish Year
A year-long program that will guide participants through a substantive Jewish learning experience emphasizing how a celebration of Jewish time can help individuals integrate Judaism into the natural rhythms of their lives.  Participants will experience living the Jewish calendar through the celebration of a variety of holidays and festivals.  Additionally, the curriculum is designed to explore and discuss a different Jewish middah (character trait) each month, using ancient and modern Jewish texts, stories and simple activities, as a start point of the conversation.

Two cohorts of Living a Jewish Year will be offered for 2019-2020:
