Welcome to our learning center, Makor! 

Here, all course registrants will find course materials and additional resources to support Mussar study and practice.

You can access Makor on any device, including your tablet or phone. Always access Makor from a web browser, such as Chrome, Safari, or Brave. Do not download the Tovuti app, which is for developers, not students.

You can learn on your own or join a live course!
