This year Rabbi Yael Ridberg will introduce the Jewish practice of Musar, which offers each of us a method of cultivating character traits that we want to embody. The central premise of Musar practice is that the ultimate purpose of our lives is to make this world a better place and that integral to the work of repairing the world (tikkun olam) is the work of elevating the level at which we each individually behave in the world (tikkun middot). Through this practice, we are offered a way of becoming more patient, more trusting, more reliable, more forgiving and so on. Each of these character traits that we cultivate is called a middah (virtue or value) and each month we will examine a different virtue. No charge. To RSVP please call the office at 858-268-3674 ext. 101 or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
