Learning @ Mishkan

Love, money, politics, prayer, sex, meditation, justice, spirituality. Torah, Talmud, kabbalah, mysticism, prayerbook, Hebrew, Aramaic.

And that’s just what we’ve already got on the calendar for feeding your head and spirit. Judaism is a holistic, intellectual-spiritual collection of practices, texts and ideas, and nobody has learned all there is to know. That’s why all of our classes are open to all levels of students entering with a diversity of backgrounds. We move fast, go deep and have big conversations. Join us, push your comfort zone and open your mental horizons to the Judaism they never taught you in Sunday school.

NOURISH: a Jewish Food Workshop

Join Mishkan us for a workshop on Jews & food– an exploration of the interplay between food, Jewish tradition and contemporary life. What does Judaism have to say about our relationship to food and with our bodies? How do we infuse mindfulness into the food we eat and the way we eat it? Join us for conversation, learning, and mindfulness exercises, oh and some delicious snacks of course. The event is free however registration is required.



Join us for a six-session pilot series brought to you by OM: The Jewish Mindfulness Collective.  Taught by seasoned meditation teachers from Mishkan Chicago and the Center for Jewish Mindfulness at Orot, the series includes weekly teachings and mindfulness practices inspired by the weekly Torah portion.

“Before, Talmud had been a mysterious and intimidating body of knowledge we thought we could never penetrate. Now we feel it’s been opened up for us and we can take claim to it. The learning process has been intense and difficult but well worth it.”
