Mishneh Torah - Laws of Teshuvah
Saturday, November 12 | 1:30PM
When it was written in the 12th Century, Maimonides’ Mishneh Torah changed the landscape of Rabbinic literature, and has since served as one of the great authoritative codes of Jewish Law.
Together, we will explore this text (beginning with Hilchot Teshuvah—the Laws of Repentance-- ), taking a close look at the Hebrew text even as English translations will be available. Please register here for this study group.
Path of the mensch
Beginning in November
November 9 - April 5
The World of Mussar is opening before you and you are invited to enter. Come join in small group study, led by Rabbi Carie Carter, as we embark on a program of study and practice in the Jewish Spiritual tradition of Mussar (Jewish Spiritual Ethics). Using Alan Morinis’ book, Everyday Holiness and a curriculum developed by The Mussar Institute, we will explore what Jewish tradition has to teach us about the traits of humility, gratitude, and patience, among others, and discover how we can improve these qualities in our own lives.

In between group sessions, you will meet with your chevruta (study partner).
This program is appropriate for all. Please register here by November 1, 2016 - so we can sign you up with the Mussar Institute.

We look forward to coming together to learn to “Cultivate our Inner Mensch”.
