Our mission is to engage, educate, empower and inspire people through dynamic experiences of Jewish prayer, music, learning, social activism and community building.
Whether in person or online, through music or Talmud or powerful conversations, whether in services or social events, Mishkan is reimagining and reinvigorating the next generation of Judaism in Chicago and beyond.
Holy Pandemonium! Simhat Torah
We sing, we dance, we roll back the Torah and start it anew. Join us for a celebration of all the wisdom we’ve accrued this year, our Torah– it’s holy pandemonium, people!
S&M Bet Midrash
You can learn Talmud! Be a player and learn how to learn, using a traditional Hebrew/Aramaic book of the Talmud and a dictionary, not to mention a hevruta (study partner) and the award-winning guidance of Rabbi Benay Lappe, founder and rosh yeshiva of SVARA: A Traditionally Radical Yeshiva.
A Taste of Mishkan: Music for an Inspired Year
Last year, Mishkan produced its first professionally live-recorded CD, full of the tunes you know and love from Friday nights, High Holidays & the rest of the year. This compilation is all about getting more inspiration and spirituality out into the world, so we hope you enjoy this music everywhere; in your home and on your commute, when you lie down and when you rise up.
