Chai Mitzvah – Adult Education
Saturday, May 2, @ 10:30 am
We are pleased to announce that the new Chai Mitzvah- Adult Education series begins on Zoom this coming Saturday, May 2. Classes will be held every other Saturday. The subject for the coming months is the study of ” Mussar”, a Jewish spiritual practice that gives concrete instructions on how to live a meaningful and ethical life. It is virtue-based ethics — based on the idea that by cultivating inner virtues, we improve ourselves. This is in contrast to most Jewish ethical teachings, which are rule-based. Today, a number of people who do not follow traditional Jewish rules and rituals are attracted to Mussar because it offers opportunities for personal transformation through a Jewish lens. Each of the 11 sessions will be led by Rabbi Damsky and will explore a different inner virtue (such as wisdom, generosity, humility, responsibility) through discussion and Jewish texts. The class starts at 10:30 a.m.- we open up the Zoom for “brunch” visiting at 10:00 am and you can drop in any time. All are welcome!
Please RSVP to Temple Israel at email@example.com and we will send you the Zoom link and the class materials.
