The Practice of Mussar is a Jewish approach to living and behaving ethically via character improvement. We use accessible tools, called middot – character traits by which we measure our growth. By studying these traits and the suggestions of the Mussar masters, we come to a better understanding of why we sometimes behave in a manner out-of-sync with who we believe ourselves to be.

Our animal drives often step into the ring with our higher selves and fight it out.  Mussar helps us prepare for the battle and grow from the outcome.

We’ll use Everyday Holiness, the Jewish Spiritual Path of Mussar, by Alan Morinis, as our study guide and discussion prompter.  We’ll also make use of modern scientific theory such as cognitive dissonance, to further our understanding of why we make the choices we do.

While Mussar is a Jewish approach, its study/practice is not exclusively Jewish.  People of diverse spiritual paths can learn and participate together. So bring a friend!
