Mussar - Get in touch with the person you would like to be

This is a class for those who are familiar with Mussar and want to dive deeper into their study and practice.

 
Have you ever asked yourself the following questions - What kind of human being am I? What are my strengths? What are my weaknesses? What can I do that will help me become a better person? How does who I am impact others and the world around me? Mussar offers an answer. The study and practice of Mussar is a centuries old Jewish tradition that is as relevant today as it was 1000 years ago. You can live a meaningful, ethical life by examining your inner middot, soul traits, and cultivating behavior that is an expression of the best version of yourself. Through study, honest reflection and contemplative practices, you can become the person you would like to be. Mussar will guide you toward overcoming your inner obstacles so that you can improve the quality of you own character which will improve the quality of the relationships you have with others. Through personal transformation, you will improve the civility of the world in which we live.
In collaboration with CJP and Hebrew College’s Open Circle Learning,TST will offer four Mussar classes. These va’ads (groups) will be led by the TST Center for Spirituality co-chair Caryl Shaw who has been studying and practicing Mussar for 7 years. Caryl is a Mussar facilitator certified by The Mussar Institute. A fifth va’ad will be led by TST member Jenny Kaplan, PhD, LICSW, who has been studying and practicing Mussar for 3 years and will complete her facilitator certification this fall.
Together we will exercise our souls using text study, group discussion, study with a chevruta (partner), journaling and targeted practices.
Class limited to 14.
The cost for each of the courses is $140. Scholarships available. Please speak with Cantor Schachner.
