Inner Ladder: Continuing Mussar Steps is the continuation program for those who have completed either Seeking Everyday Holiness, Path of the Mensch, You Shall Be Holy, or Gates of Everyday Holiness.

Groups continue to study as a va’ad and in chevruta, with a focus on six middot: generosity, enthusiasm, silence, compassion, lovingkindness, and gratitude. Each middah unit offers lesson outlines for the group facilitator following a similar format as Seeking Everyday Holiness, Path of the Mensch, You Shall be Holy or Gates of Everyday Holiness.

You’ll receive:

  • A variety of texts from both modern and traditional Mussar sources
  • Discussion questions to help deepen your own understanding or to guide study with a partner
  • Extensive suggestions and guidance for a consistent personal Mussar practice
  • Short Mussar quotations to be used for reciting and chanting and to lead group discussions
  • Stories and personal experiences relating to each middah
