Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Led by Ricki Weintraub, we begin with a short ritual welcoming the new moon, followed by an exploration of Mussar, a practice that can be traced back to tenth century Babylonia.
The word Mussar means "correction" or "instruction" and in modern Hebrew, "ethics." The core practice of Mussar is the practice of chesbon hanefesh, "accounting of the soul." We hope you will join us as we explore the soul traits that make each of us who we are and learn techniques to live life consciously with spiritual integrity and authenticity.
Each monthly gathering will stand alone - so if you are unable to make them all, please come whenever you can. Bring a friend and a nosh, if you are able.
