posted Jul 15, 2010, 7:52 PM by David Izraelevitz

Naomi Israel from Santa Fe has graciously offered us a chance to have Rabbi 
 and Rebbetzin Gruman as  leaders on Thursday Aug. 5 from 7-8:30 PM at the 
LAJC. They will be visiting Santa Fe during the first week of August. We 
hope that you will attend this one evening class. Susan Benjamin is 
organizing this event. 

Quicken for the Soul: Mussar 

One of the key teachings of mussar is the importance of making a regular 
cheshbon hanefesh, a spiritual accounting of our deeds.  We will look at The 
Path of the Just, Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzatto's seminal mussar work, to learn 
about the fundamental role of cheshbon hanefesh in achieving our full 
spiritual potential. 

This class will be presented by Rabbi Aaron and Rebbetzin Elkie Gruman. 
 Rabbi Gruman is the rabbi of Congregation Toras Emes of Twin-Rivers, NJ. 
 He received his ordination from the famous Lakewood Yeshiva, and is one of 
the founders of the Shalom Heritage Center.  He also serves as the Director 
of Torah Links, the outreach arm of Lakewood Yeshiva.
