Ethical Literature (Mussar) in Jewish History: A Personal Reading List

Premieres today at 12pm ET (New York Time)

Good morning fellow students of Jewish history!

Today is the Rosh Hodesh Elul, the beginning of the month of Elul, initiating the annual season of introspection leading up to the High Holidays. I’ve prepared this brief video that surveys some of the most important works of the literary tradition that make up the loosely-organized Mussar Canon. It’s a personal rather than exhaustive list, but I hope you find it useful.

Wishing you all a good Hodesh and a successful period of self-development!

HMA
