On Mussar and Theology

This Class is Full!

Madrich: Rabbi Ira Stone 

Drawing on the previous classes studying both Nefesh haHayyim and Emmanuel Levinas, this class will focus specifically on the role of theology to undergird Mussar practice. Is it necessary? Where and why does God enter into the practice? What understanding of God can we have in a post-holocaust world to play this role if it is deemed important?

One does not have to have taken both or either of the previous classes

Fee: $180

Thursdays on ZOOM
Time: 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET

Dates: September 15 to November 17, 2022 (no class on October 6) 

 

An Introduction to the Life and Work of Hannah Arendt  

This Class is Full!

Madrich: Rabbi Joshua Boettiger 

The 20th Century Jewish political philosopher Hannah Arendt was a controversial and brilliant thinker, who was deeply concerned with what we might call Mussar if we are able to stretch our classical understanding of the term. In this five-session class, we’ll look at Arendt’s life, read excerpts from her work, and explore together what the implications of her thought might be for us today, both politically and personally.

Fee: $100

Tuesdays on ZOOM
Time: Noon-1:00 PM ET

Dates: October 25 to November 22, 2022
