Mussar Study Groups – Fall, 2022

The Mussar Institute provides people with ideas and practical tools deriving from the Mussar tradition in Judaism that helps to guide and motivate them to develop and improve the qualities of their inner lives, in fulfillment of the potential of their souls as well as for the benefit of the world.

In a Mussar group, individuals learn to focus on middot such as generosity, patience and humility, and spend time with each middah as it relates to one’s life. Alan Morinis, the founder of The Mussar Institute, says that the goal of Mussar practice is to release the light of holiness that lives within the soul.

TAE Partners are invited to join a Mussar group facilitated by Sandy Greenstein!
