"Intro to Mussar: A spiritual practice of good actions"
As the creator of American Mussar Greg Marcus, PhD, notes, there is a solid argument that the Jews invented self help over a thousand years ago when Rabbinic scholars were trying to understand why it is so hard to be good.
Mussar is a thousand year old philosophy and a practice that gives concrete instructions and guidelines to help us live meaningful and ethical lives by exploring Jewish values and character traits that lead to mindful living.
UUJA is launching a Mussar small study group beginning January 9th, 2022, and regularly meeting the second Sunday of each month(4pm Eastern time/3 pm Central Time/ 1 pm Pacific Time).
The first session will provide a history and overview, followed by monthly mutual guidance sessions.
Look for additional information and registration soon!

From “Man’s Search for Meaning” – Viktor Frankl
“It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us.
We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life—daily and hourly.
Our answer must consist, not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct.
Life ultimately means taking the responsibility
to find the right answer to its problems
and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual.”
