Mussar, also known as Tikkun-Middot, is a traditional Jewish set of practices to encourage ethical and spiritual growth. This inner work is essential to, and intimately connected with the work of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world.
Through group discussion, text study, and journaling/reflection, group members will explore middot (qualities of the soul) with the explicit goal of applying them in our lives.
Hope Melton will facilitate the cohort, using the Tikkun Middot curriculum from the Institute for Jewish Spirituality.
