Join Rabbi Marcia Plumb to delve into texts from Jewish tradition and contemporary sources, with particular focus on the study of Mussar. Explore the middot (“soul traits”) of Mussar through ongoing textual study, reflection, journaling, and kabbalot (small mindfulness exercises). The class engages with these texts in full group session, and in small breakout groups. Some of the essential questions we will delve into are: how do we understand the selected middot? How do we engage with the middot 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 classes are for learners of all backgrounds.
