Annual Kallah


Registration is now open for Kallah XVI – Scottsdale

Kallah XVI is different from all our past Kallot.   

Here are 10 reasons to attend:

  1. We are honoring Alan Morinis, Founder of The Mussar Institute.
  2. Rabbi Amy Eilberg will join Rabbi Avi Fertig, Rabbi David Jaffe, and Rabbi Micha Berger (yes, back again!) as faculty.
  3. We are created In God’s Image and our theme will be B’Tzelem Elokim.
  4. We’ll explore the middot of:

Kavod – Honor (as we honor Alan.)

Manhigut – Leadership (what it means to be a leader and how we can all be leaders.)

Achrayut – Responsibility (what we need to do to become a leader in God’s image.)

Yirah – Awe (recognizing our enormous potential within and what we’re being called on to do.)

  1. Our new venue is Embassy Suites by Hilton Scottsdale Resort in warm and sunny Arizona.
  2. You will strengthen your Mussar practice.
  3. You will meet new spiritual partners on this spiritual journey.
  4. You will reconnect with past friends and spiritual partners.
  5. You will help grow and celebrate this dynamic Mussar community.
  6. You will take this Kallah experience with you to shape the rest of your life.
