Learning from a Mussar-Based Initiative in a Community Day School
Kress, Jeffrey S.
Journal of Jewish Education, v83 n2 p133-150 2017
"Mussar," an approach to character growth emerging as a movement in the 18th century, has increasingly been incorporated into contemporary Jewish education. The purpose of mussar--the cultivation of character--is consistent with the goals of Jewish day schools and other settings. This article examines the implementation of a mussar-based program in a Jewish community high school. Particular attention is given to questions raised by the introduction of this program into a pluralistic school setting. Implications are discussed in terms of the broader goals of Jewish education.
