Develop a daily and weekly practice based on individual study, journaling, text study with a partner and work in a Mussar va’ad, a class of like-minded seekers, with a trained teacher, a madrich or madrichah.
Approach traditional Jewish sources through the groundbreaking contemporary thinking of Rabbi Stone and his students, which opens up new possibilities for old terms, such as God, Torah and the Jewish people.
In a small setting, share with others who are learning how to make “Love your neighbor as yourself” the cornerstone of their lives — discover that joy and holiness happen in those moments when we are fully present to others.
