Become Your Best Self

Come. Discover. And, grow with us through the inspiring and

practical Jewish spiritual tradition of Mussar.


There is the potential for our approach to Mussar to be perceived as self-help, exclusively on a humanistic plane. Our approach, the Mussar approach, is deeply rooted in the Torah and with this rootedness comes several layers of reality; additional to the worldly, there is a spiritual presence within the material. There is divinity. This is a spiritual perspective on self-help, making Mussar distinct from other approaches. As we say, working on the self but not for the sake of the self. We are more than a lineage and tradition, there is this truth, this emet, that is the foundation of all we say and do. We wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the spirituality of Mussar.  It broadens the perspective of what is the self, what is one's responsibility to develop their "selves" and this is all so germane to the Jewish perspective.
