Instruction, resources & community for those seeking greater awareness, wisdom, and transformation through the Jewish spiritual path of Mussar.

 

BECOME A CHAVER/CHAVERA TODAY

Our Membership Program Has Transformed into Our Chaverim Initiative. 

Our community is the center of our vision. The bonds between and among our people form the channels along which the true value of The Mussar Institute is generated and felt.

The idea is captured in the Hebrew word chaverim / חברים. A chaver/chavera is a “friend.” It describes people who feel their connections with others, and experience and share caring conduct across time and distance. But the word chaver/chavera has special meaning for us as students of Mussar because it is the root of the name given to learning partners: chevruta. Our community is one where students study together. Together, we will build a robust, meaningful, and caring community of chaverim.

See our Chaverim and learn where they live.

WHAT COMES TO YOU AS A CHAVER/CHAVERA

Over the coming months, we will put in place ways for all to experience a deeper, richer, and more connected spiritual community within which we will foster study, practice, and chesed (loving-kindness), especially at times of life transition.

    • Chesed Minyamin: You will be invited to join a group of 10 with a leader who will be available to you as a mentor, connector, and friend.
    • Programs and Introductory and Beginning-level Courses will have special pricing for members. MORE
    • Intermediate and Advanced-level Courses will be accessible to Chaverim only. MORE
    • Special Webinars from Alan, Avi, and other Mussar leaders will be accessible only by members. MORE
