It’s easy to look around us and feel despair at all the brokenness in our world. But to keep living, hope is essential. Where does this hope come from, and what is it, really? Mussar is a Jewish framework for developing specific personal qualities. In this class we will study mussar to explore and practice some Jewish techniques for managing despair and cultivating hope.

Each class will include some learning of Jewish texts as well as conversation, reflection and practice activities to try between sessions.

Dates: Tuesday evenings, April 2, 9, 16 and 30
