Study with Rabbi Jenny
A Series of TWO Courses
Monday nights, 7:00 - 9:00PM
I. A Journey into Mussar
11 class sessions, Oct 8 - Jan 14 (see class dates below)
Cost: $250 ($300 for non-members)
Mussar is an illuminating, accessible and highly practical set of teachings (reaching back as far as the 10th century) which help us cultivate personal growth and spiritual realization in the midst of day-to-day life. Join us as we explore Jewish wisdom from the Mussar tradition to cultivate ideas and practices that have the power to help us heal and grow. Our learning will take the form of text study, group conversation, learning with a partner/chevruta (in class) as well as readings and practices beyond the classroom which will help you identify your “spiritual curriculum” and contribute to the world around you in the most unique and meaningful ways.
Class dates: Oct 8, 15, 22, 29; Nov 5, 26; Dec 3, 10, 17; Jan 7, 14
II. The Nature of Prayer & Building a Prayer Practice
7 class sessions, Jan 28 - Apr 1, (see class dates below)
Cost: $160 ($200 for non-members)
Prayer is a central Jewish act yet for many contemporary Jews it feels complicated and foreign. This course is intended to give participants the space, knowledge and some experience to help move towards a clearer and deeper understanding of prayer as part of our personal spiritual practice. This course is about the “experience” of prayer, not about exploring the formal liturgy.
Class dates: Jan 28; Feb 4, 11; Mar 11, 18, 25; Apr 1
