The Mussar Institute (TMI) advances the study and practice of Mussar, a Jewish path of character development and spiritual growth leading to awareness, wisdom, and transformation. Through experiential online and in-person courses based on classic and contemporary sources, The Mussar Institute inspires individuals, organizations, and communities around the world, regardless of affiliation, to align heart and mind with the highest ideals of the Jewish tradition.
History of TMI
The Mussar Institute was founded in 2004, by Dr. Alan Morinis, to organize a response for requests for courses and facilitator training in Mussar teachings and practices. The first year, TMI offered a retreat or Kallah, the first of 16 annual Kallahs. Today, TMI offers courses at all levels of Mussar expertise and knowledge, training for facilitators, rabbis and clergy in Mussar facilitation, programs and curricula for organizations and congregations, and resources and community for all.
