Participate as much or as little as you choose. This group meets only via Zoom on the regular link.

Class will meet weekly in the Beit Midrash, and on Zoom.  If you have any questions about which Hebrew class is appropriate for you, please contact Morah Rita directly.

Tuesdays 
Mussar | Facilitated by Dr. Yoram Kinberg
12:45 p.m.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Mussar is a Jewish spiritual practice that involves self-examination through the exploration of various character traits (middot) such as humility, gratitude, kindness, anger, patience, and forgiveness.  We each deal with these traits in different ways, and therefore we each have a unique spiritual curriculum.  The goal of Mussar practice is to make us a better mensch, more attuned to ourselves, but just as importantly, to others.   Our “textbook” for the class will be Everyday Holiness --The Jewish Path of Mussar by Alan Morinis.  The practice is simple, yet challenging. This class meets regularly on Zoom.
