We all have soul traits (middot) that set our characteristics and guide our place in the world. We all have the gorgeous gift of Torah and its teachings, which continually offer us pathways to awakening and wisdom. This class will offer the intersection of these two guides. We examine our own soul qualities, strengthening them through the study of Torah and its so-ancient and so-contemporary offerings. Together, we will study how to find ourselves in Torah and to bring out the Torah within our own being.
