As part of our year-long celebration honoring Rabbi Arnie Gluck, Rabbi Eric Gurvis will join us for Shabbat morning services (Saturday 10:00 a.m.) and a Sunday Mussar Study breakfast (at 9:15 a.m.).

Rabbi Eric Gurvis is the director of Chaverim and Outreach at The Mussar Institute. He facilitates Mussar groups across Massachusetts and is a faculty member at Hebrew College’s Open Circle Jewish Learning program. Rabbi Gurvis is also a senior rabbinic fellow of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem.

Rabbi Gurvis has served congregations in New York, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Massachusetts. He was ordained at Hebrew Union College – Jewish Institute of Religion.

Rabbi Gurvis’s topics:

  • Saturday at 10:00 a.m. during services: “Torah Through a Mussar Lens – Reading Parashat Vayera with Mussar”
  • Sunday at 9:15 a.m.: “As Shaky as a Fiddler on the Roof: Why & How Mussar Can Help us Find Balance in Life and Times of Challenge”

Join us Saturday at 10:00 a.m. for Shabbat services in the sanctuary, or on Zoom (links).

On Sunday morning, bring your own breakfast or stop by the Cafe or the religious school’s pancake and omelet breakfast before joining Rabbi Gurvis for an exploration of Mussar, a virtues-based approach to Jewish ethics and character development. That will be 9:15 in the Sanctuary Social Hall.
