Mussar Muse: Lead with Love


This series is available by commision to individual congregations. Contact for group pricing.

At times it seems like we’re in narrow straits, but with an open heart, compassion, curiosity and LOVE, we can alter and lighten our own hearts and uplift the world around us. Open your heart to imagination, play, and creativity. With shorter days and less light, we’ll bring our best self to infuse light into the world.

Each of these four monthly sessions will play in creativity through the arts. If you’re comfortable with art, great! If you’re not certain about an arts track, we encourage you to suspend judgement and release your tight boundaries to a process of creativity. The end product is NOT the focus. Our first session is just around the corner. We’ll open with text wisdom from the masters.

You can reserve your spot now, or sign up for updates at and click on “Mussar Muse – Lifelong Learner”.
We’re lining up co-collaborators so stay tuned!

You can anticipate:

  • Juicy text study
  • Eye-pleasing slides

Over the weeks, we’ll build new self-awareness and self-expression while tapping into the Mussar treasure trove of Jewish wisdom practice.
