Mussar: The Spiritual Practice of Good Actions

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

If we all had what it takes to be a mensch, a person of extraordinary character, wouldn’t we all be one? In fact, everyone has what it takes; we just haven’t been trained to make it happen. Judaism has a program of extreme spiritual fitness that can teach each and every one of us to become a mensch; it’s called Mussar. For over 1000 years, Mussar has taught how to develop character, not simply to overcome our weaknesses but to shine and thrive in life. Join us for a highly interactive program to explore the Soul Trait of Humility. Mussar teaches that Humility is not about being meek, but rather finding the appropriate balance between meekness and arrogance. Whether you are the type of person who wants more courage to speak out, or someone who deep inside knows that you should be a better listener, you’ll come away energized and empowered to take one step closer to your best self.
