Working Together to Become “A BETTER ME”

February 14, 2023

In this ongoing 6 session journey, we will WORK TOGETHER TO BECOME “A BETTER ME” using the wisdom of Mussar, a Jewish spiritual practice that gives practical instructions and reflections on how to live an ethical and meaningful life.

Our goal is to journey towards becoming an “extra-ordinary ordinary person”, a mensch. People of all backgrounds are welcome to join us. No experience necessary. Please be open to conversation and reflection.



Please register for all six sessions and plan on attending as many as possible.

  • 2/14 – 7-8 pm
  • 2/21 – 7-8 pm
  • 2/28 – 7-8 pm
  • 3/7 – 7-8 pm
  • 3/14 [time changed to 6:30 – 7:30 pm]
  • 3/21 – 7-8 pm

February 21 and March 21 will have an in-person option at the JCC PGH in Squirrel Hill for those who desire, while everyone will be able to access these sessions on Zoom.
