Introduction to the Middot

Mussar Practice

Monthly Classes
October 2021 to May 2022


Nefesh is a middot-based community. Introduction to Mussar, the spiritual practice of middot, the core values of our tradition, include Rachamim (compassion), Simchah (joy), Tzedakah (justice), and many more.

Nefesh chooses one of the middot to examine each month. Intro to Mussar is a space for you to develop that middah or the one(s) of your choosing at Rosh Hashanah.

Their Stories, Our Stories

Sunday Boost: Torah Study

Join Rabbi Susan as she opens wide the stories of our ancestors in the Torah, bringing an intimacy and shared imagination.

This class we will focus on the stories of our beautiful and flawed matriarchs and patriarchs that hold such possibility for exploration in our lives. Enter into the narratives and poetics that have shaped our people over the centuries and continue to everyday. And what about what is not in the text? Who are those that are in Torah but with little voice? What are the stories calling out to be heard?

Rabbi Susan will share story, text, song, poetry to deepen and widen an endless path of Torah.
