Mussar: Living a Meaningful and Ethical Jewish Life
July 10, 2019 - 9:00 p.m. Facilitated by Elliott Myrowitz
Mussar is a Jewish spiritual practice that has evolved over the past 1,000-plus year. The Mussar Institute descibes its purpose as: "to help an individual soul to pinpoint and then to break through the barriers that surround and obstruct the flow of inner light in our lives."
This interactive webinar is intended to include men who have no knowledge about Mussar and men for whom Mussar serves in integral part of their daily lives. The program will begin with an introduction to Mussar. We will then transition to an open discussion for men to share how Mussar impacts their lives.
We will post resources and other materials about Mussar in the days leading up to the webinar. Until then, here are some thoughts from Elliott Myrowitz to help you prepare for the webinar:
I view this webinar as a personal sharing of what we have gained by studing/practicing/ and living Mussar at specific moments in our lives. While this may be like saying how Torah play out in specific moments, I think this personal sharing can encourage those unfamiliar with Mussar to learn more, those who have some experience to continue learning and practicing, and those who are teachers/leaders of Mussar to share some of their personal wisdom.
