Mussar is a Jewish spiritual practice that has existed for more than one thousand years. Mussar is based on the precept that true joy can only come as the result of serving the other. The practice helps replace the habits of self-service and self-protection with service to others.
Menschwork, in partnership with the Center for Contemporary Mussar, will offer a seven-month class for men who want to make a commitment to their spiritual growth.
It is important that attendees commit to participating in the entire program.
