Who We Are

Mishkan is a burgeoning spiritual community in Chicago reclaiming Judaism’s inspiration and transformative essence. Not bound by a particular location, we meet for soulful musical prayer and learning, at homes and spaces all around the city, from synagogues to yoga studios.

The Torah describes the Mishkan as a tent that the ancient Israelites carried with them through the desert, creating holy space whenever and where ever they stopped to gather around and in it.  Where ever we are on our journeys as Jews and as citizens of the world, we create meaningful connections- with ourselves, with others, with Jewish wisdom and with God- when we gather together in prayer, song, learning, and tikkun (repairing the world).  That’s what Mishkan is all about.

So join the rabbi for coffee, show up at a house party in your neighborhood, get inspired at a Friday night service, get involved in tikkun (repairing the world) work.  Meet other folks in Chicago who are hungry for deeper Jewish experiences that get us higher, push us farther, and get us more and more connected.

Just get in touch already, would you?
