Our goal for MITZVAH is to deepen your capacity to connect students to meaningful Jewish practices for daily living. We will use traditional and contemporary texts, rituals, practices and interpretations that bring the beauty and importance of mitzvah-centered living fully to life.
Our goal for MUSSAR is to prepare you to nurture the healthy physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development of your students by learning the key principles of this mindfulness practice. You will learn core concepts, study from traditional Mussar texts and engage in the fundamentals of this practice.
Our goal for MAGGID is to ensure that you know how to select and shape traditional and contemporary mitzvah stories effectively for telling in regard to the major settings of Jewish life. You will be guided on how best to deliver stories with a quality of presence that engages and inspires your students and communities. A substantial repertoire will result.
