Kids & Families at Mishkan
Mishkan is the place for deep Jewish spirituality in Chicago, for adults AND for kids.
Our family programs are designed to generate excitement and empowerment among kids and parents with the goal of creating a more meaningful Jewish life. By offering programs for children and parents to learn both together and separately, our families connect deeply with one another while gaining confidence in their Jewish life.
We serve families of all religious and spiritual backgrounds as well as kids of all ages.
The Mensch Academy is inspired, down-to-earth Judaism for kids and families.
A monthly Saturday morning experience for parents and tots, ages 0-2, to explore Jewish spirituality through music, storytelling, prayer and play.
