Tikkun Middot: The Practice of Living an Ethical Life (Online)

  • Wednesday, May 10, 2023
  • 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM
  • Program Leader: Alison Kur & Firkins Reed

Why is it so often difficult to live the loving lives to which we aspire? How can we become wiser and more responsive, instead of triggered and reactive? Tikkun middot is a Jewish practice for cultivating desirable middot, or character traits, including generosity, patience, balance, trust, and courage. The practice is grounded in Jewish teachings, mindfulness practice, and peer to peer exploration. It is a powerful and practical tool for aligning our actions with our most deeply held values. Tikkun middot practice is for anyone who wants to more often be their “best self” in the actions of daily life.
