the conclusion that true piety
and fear of God cannot be
achieved except by constant ef-
fort and specialized training.
First one must engage in close
introspection a n d scrutinize
every aspect of one's conduct.
For while "Hasidism may lead
one to discover holiness in a
glass of liquor, Mussar can lead
to the discovery of flaws in a
tear." When a person realized
what his main faults were, he
was to work to eradicate them
by the repeated chanting of
verses from the Bible and say-
ings of the Talmud referring to
the evil of such traits. And one's
imagination had to be exercised
in order to conjure up the true
meaning of these verses. In ad-
dition, one had to cultivate posi-
tive virtues and a true under-
standing of what constituted
virtue.
To allow for the proper study
and exercise of mussar, Rabbi
Israel set aside small chapels,
"shtiebels" where people could
spend an hour or so free from
distraction, and devote them-
selves to the improvement of
their own conduct. These shtie-
bels, however, never gained ac-
ceptance and they were soon
abandoned. The great Lithuan-
ian yeshivot of Telz, Slabodka
and Lemza, to mention some,
had all been established by
mussar - trained scholars, a n d
today the study of mussar forms
part of the curriculum of most
yeshivot in Jerusalem or Bnei
Brak, London or New York.
