Course Description

Bereishit Rabba 44    Rav said: The commandments were only given to refine man through them.  The Rambam in Moreh Nevukhim writes that the mitzvot educate man,  and  guide the perfection of his moral character. In this course we will explore character traits and behaviors for self-improvement , using the weekly Parsha as our guide . We will study the “midot” of chesed, humility,  zerizut, anger, and others with an emphasis on the practical relevance to our life. Text based learning that requires a fusion of intellect and heart.
