Every Day, Holy Day: 365 Days of Teachings and Practices from the Jewish Tradition of Mussar


Every Day, Holy Day: 365 Days of Teachings and Practices from the Jewish Tradition of Mussar Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The myriad events and interactions that make up our everyday life provide a rich opportunity for us to examine our impulses and actions and grow spiritually, according to the Jewish practice of Mussar. Mussar is an eminently wise, practical, and effective way to cultivate awareness, gratitude, personal growth, and ethical action on a daily basis. The path has its origins in Orthodox Judaism but it has become popular with Jews of all affiliations who are interested in a practice that can infuse daily life with more purpose and meaning.

This daybook will be an essential companion to anyone who wants to experience this life-changing contemplative practice. Using a “soul trait” such as honesty, courage, enthusiasm, honor, and equanimity as a starting point, each practice page includes:

   • a teaching that illuminates the trait of the day

   • an affirmation phrase focused on that trait

   • a practical exercise to expand our experience of the trait

   • a space for journaling about experiences with the trait
