Musar Masters Part 5

Rabbi Shai Held

Encounter the writings of Rabbi Eliyahu Lopian (1876-1970) and Rabbi Chaim Friedlander (1923-1986), two of the most prominent and influential figures in the Musar movement. Through close readings of selections from their works Lev Eliyahu and Siftei Chaim, we'll explore such themes as the centrality of hesed (love; kindness; grace), the importance of cultivating the heart, the competing ideals of subduing our will versus reshaping it.
