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


A New Course from Alan Morinis – Begins January 26, 2020



When seen through a Jewish lens, this world is primarily a spiritual place infused with divinity. And you and I are souls making our way through this spiritual world in search of the wholeness and holiness that is the ultimate fulfillment of the soul’s mission.

As the lynchpin verse of the Torah tells us: “Kedoshim tihiyu — You shall be holy” (Leviticus 19:2).

Translating that verse into practical terms, Rav Kook tells us: “Mussar is the corridor and holiness is the parlor.” How alien is that vision in our secularized, assimilated, materialistic era!

In this course, we will explore and probe the primary Jewish teachings on holiness in order to strengthen our understanding of this elusive but crucially important quality. The goal is to internalize and awaken a vivid awareness that will guide our steps in life, which is that there is no other purpose for our lives than to be holy.
