Mussar Learning with Alan Morinis

Sunday, May 17, 2020 23 Iyar 5780

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Dr. Alan Morinis, Founder of The Mussar Institute, is widely considered to be the leading figure in the contemporary revival of the Mussar movement, a 1,100-year-old authentic Jewish personal and communal spiritual tradition that was nearly lost following the Holocaust. A filmmaker, Rhodes Scholar, and anthropologist whose focus had been Hindu religious pilgrimages, he began to explore Mussar following a personal crisis in 1997.  

Alan sought private instruction under Rabbi Yechiel Perr, an accomplished master who stood in an unbroken line of transmission of the Mussar tradition. Following years of study, he reinterpreted the ancient Mussar learnings and practices for modern audiences in Climbing Jacob’s Ladder and Everyday Holiness. To address the growing public interest in Mussar, he founded The Mussar Institute in 2004. He went on to author two more books, Every Day, Holy Day, and With Heart in Mind.    

 The TBH Shabbat morning Mussar group has been studying “With Heart in Mind” for the past four years, and we are delighted to welcome Alan to TBH via Zoom to engage in Mussar study with us. Sunday, May 17 at 1:00 p.m. Pre-registration required.    

With many thanks to Michele and Richard Jackman for making this connection.

Zoom information available in the weekly.
