For experienced Mussar students
with Rabbi Eric Gurvis
This group builds on previous Mussar Va’ad experience in pursuit of this inspiring and rich Jewish spiritual discipline that helps us to nurture the depth of soul and spirit. In year 3 we circle back to a few middot (soul-traits) from previous years as well as expand our understanding practice with new middot to be chosen by the group.
Thursday mornings, 10 – 11:30 am
8 Sessions: Oct 24, Nov 7, 21, Dec 5, 19, Jan 2, 16, 30
