Vichy France and the Jews
Jul 19 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

The right-wing French regime based in Vichy governed much of France following that country’s defeat by Germany in 1940. We will discuss the rise of official anti-semitism in Vichy France, where the authorities attempted to outdo the Germans in their treatment of the Jews. We will, at the same time, strive to reconcile this vicious treatment with the fact that French Jews survived at markedly higher rates than Jews elsewhere in Europe. The discussion will be led by Hevreh member Stu Schweitzer who is a docent at the Holocaust Museum and Education Center of SW Florida.

The Jewish Road to Character: A Taste of Mussar
Jul 25 @ 11:45 am – 1:00 pm

In his 2015 book, The Road to Character, NY Times writer David Brooks posits that we live our
lives by two different sets of virtues: what he calls “Resume virtues” and “Eulogy virtues.” He
writes, “Resume virtues are the ones you list on your resume, the skills that you bring to the job
market and that contribute to [your] external success. The eulogy virtues are deeper. They’re
the virtues that get talked about at your funeral, the ones that exist at the core of your being –
whether you are kind, brave, honest or faithful; what kind of relationships you formed. Most of
us would say that the eulogy virtues are more important than the resume virtues.” Brooks
contends that we live in a world which celebrates the resume values, and demands that we
enhance those values.
In our confusing and contentious time, many are seeking to find a greater sense of grounding in
core virtues which can guide us, uplift us and inspire us to become the best persons we can be.
For the Jewish world, asking such a focus is hardly new. Yet, in our time, we have the
uncovering of a rich part of our Jewish heritage which was nearly lost to our people – the study
and practice of Mussar. In large part inspired by the work of The Mussar Institute and other
contemporary efforts at reclaiming mussar for our day, an ever-expanding number of
communities and individuals are bringing the study Mussar teachings and their accompanying
practice into their lives.
In this 6-week series, we will delve in the study and practice of some of the Mussar traditions
wisdom for our lives in our times. Come travel the “Jewish Road to Character” along this
journey into what be a profoundly meaningful and nourishing spiritual practice for our Jewish
souls, hearts and minds.

Rabbi Eric Gurvis is Rabbi Emeritus of Temple Shalom of Newton in Newton, MA. He has studied
and practiced Mussar for over 5 years and has trained with The Mussar Institute as a facilitator
of Mussar groups; and has led such groups and explorations in a number of communities in the
Boston area.
