American Mussar:
A Contemplative Tradition for Our Time

Ben Franklin’s 13 Virtues were popularized in Menachem Mendel Lefin’s Heshbon HaNefesh, a 19th century text inspired by Franklin’s earlier work.

Merging Mussar methods of disciplined, reflective practice with Franklin’s work of character building, our group takes a deep dive in personal transformation with the objective of impacting our families, communities and world. 

Read more about Mussar and how it can help us repair the world.

If God is already tired, as suggests the Psalm, of hearing the old song, all the more so will ordinary mortals be. -Alcalay (20th c. Jewish lexicographer)
