The instructor, and students at times, present texts from Jewish tradition and contemporary sources. The class engages with these texts in full group session, and in small breakout rooms. Between class sessions, students explore the middot through ongoing textual study, reflection, journaling, and kabbalot, or small mindfulness exercises. Essential questions are how do we understand the selected middot? How do we engage with the middot, the instructor, and each other to enhance our personal spiritual growth, our daily behavior, and the alignment between the two? How can each of us contribute to the growth of others in the group, and bring our learning to repair the world?
Hebrew College Open Circle Jewish Learning is for learners of all backgrounds.
