Mussar offers a framework and a toolkit for translating the wisdom of kabbalah (specifically the sefirot of the Tree of Life) into a personalized, ongoing spiritual discipline – harnessing the midot in service of others. In this series of nine classes, Rabbi Jamie Arnold will facilitate this transformative group using two primary sources:  1) An introduction to mussar by Alan Morinis called “Everyday Holiness: The Jewish Spiritual Path of Mussar;” 2) a new book by Rabbi Toba Spitzer that explores metaphors for the Divine from nature through a mussar lens called “God is Here: Reimagining the Divine.”  The qualities we will focus on in order to grow our capacity for sacred service will be silence (sound), compassion and trust (rock).

Classes are offered in-person and virtually through Zoom:
  • Wednesdays 10:30 – 11:45am MT/ 12:30 – 1:45pm ET (Class meets: Sept 20, 27, Oct 4, 11, 18, Nov 15, 29, Dec 6, and 13 – No class Oct 25, Nov 1, 8, 22)

    The Zohar (Book of Radiance), authored in Spain in the 13th century, is the classic work of Kabbalah. It is a mystical interpretation of the Torah text. The authoritative translation of the Zohar from Aramaic to English took Daniel Matt eighteen years to complete (1998-2016). The Zohar is a tapestry of biblical interpretation, with radical use of metaphor and stories highlighting the saintly pursuits of the main characters. We will study passages from the Zohar which are most relevant to personal spiritual growth. The format of our study will alternate weekly between class and paired study (with guided questions and commentary).
