Alan Morinis from The Mussar Institute describes Mussar as:

“… a community of learners and seekers who strive to reach our full potential as individuals and as members of our communities. We draw on and share the teachings of Mussar, a practical and inspiring Jewish spiritual tradition, to foster a life of greater meaning and enhanced relationships. We open the pathway of Mussar to Jews of all denominations and affiliations, and to others who wish to explore these Jewish spiritual practices.”
