Welcome to Mishkan. We’re glad you’re here.

Mishkan is inspired, down-to-earth Judaism.

We’re about creativity and authenticity, building space for ecstatic prayer, music and meditation, for being intellectually stimulated and spiritually invigorated. We are from across the spectrum of denominations and backgrounds, LGBT and interfaith inclusive, open to everyone. We believe that Judaism is a vehicle for bringing more light, more goodness, more justice, and more joy to the world.

Music

Music at Mishkan is not a spectator sport.

Make Mishkan your playlist by checking out our our new Cd: A Taste of Mishkan.

Or check out our videos and recordings on YouTube.


Learning

We’re aiming at two simultaneous goals: Feeding the head and touching the heart.  We want to invigorate and challenge your brain and spirit, not just impart information. Check out our calendar of classes: DIY Judaism with Orot, Lunch N Learning, as well as our running all levels S&M beit midrash/Talmud learning with Svara: The Traditionally Radical Yeshiva. So much goodness!


Lifecycles

Rabbi Lizzi will consult with you to develop creative rituals for your life cycle events that take them to the next level of creativity, celebration and depth, including baby namings, brit milah ceremonies, b’nai mitzvah, weddings, funerals, and all the spaces in between. Get in touch to find out more.


Thank you!

We’re spreading the light of inspired, down-to-earth Judaism across Chicago, across the web and across the country. We are independent, non-denominational, egalitarian and embracing of everybody’s background and knowledge base.
