TeaTime Talk: Middah of the Month
October 1 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm
MIDDAH of the MONTH – Equanimity (Menuchat Ha’Nefesh)
Presented by Beth DeRicco and Cathy Ostroff
A middah is a Jewish value or virtue and it is a smart way to live. A virtue is a characteristic of/held/exhibited by a good person. A Jewish virtue or middah is such a characteristic that has been derived from Jewish tradition. Anyone, Jewish or not, can and do have middot (plural of middah) so in that sense they are universal virtues. At the same time, because middot are drawn from Jewish texts and based on Jewish understandings of the world, they are uniquely Jewish.
