An Introduction to Coastside Mussar: The Principles & The Practice

Hosted By: Coastside Jewish Community

An Introduction to Coastside Mussar: The Principles (Jan 18th) is free and will answer questions, like:

• What exactly is Mussar? What are its origins and tenets? What is its purpose? Why is it valuable?

• What is unique about “Coastside Mussar”? Why is it attractive to both theists and non-theists?

Those who want to experience the practice and its benefits can also register for the subsequent four-week virtual course, An Introduction to Coastside Mussar: The Practice, taught by Rabbi Moshe Heyn.

The course consists of four 75-minute group-practice sessions on Zoom (1/25, 2/1, 8 & 15). It includes complete instruction materials, guidance, and support. Participants will also be matched with “chevruta (study) partners” or they can choose their own study partner(s).

The event listed here is hosted by a third party. My Jewish Learning/70 Faces Media is not responsible for its content or for errors in the listing.
