Mussar Torah Studies Group – Zoom

October 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every 2 weeks that begins at 10:00 am on Tuesday, repeating until December 26, 2021

Temple Emanu-El Adult Education invites you to join an interactive course on The Mussar Torah Commentary:   A Spiritual Path to Living a Meaningful and Ethical Life.

Mussar teachers through the centuries have sought deep, accurate, and useful insights into human life. The commentary looks to the Torah as a source of fundamental guidance for human living.  The authors – distinguished rabbis – focus their lessons on specific Middot:  A Hebrew term for “inner traits,” or measures.  What makes us unique individuals (and what carves out a specific path for each of us) is the fact that these inner traits reside within each of us in different measure. ”

Come join Rabbi Magat,  Rabbi Marvin Schwab – emeritus rabbi from Temple Beth Sholom in Santa Fe,  and temple member/educator Steve Matusow.  The group will meet every other week, and though we encourage continuous participation, once you register, you may attend as your schedule permits.

You may purchase The Mussar Torah Commentary at In order to get a 20% discount when ordering from CCAR Press, enter the Promo Code 20MUSSAR in the the appropriate box.
