Good Morning Mishkanites! As we witness this historic day and the start of a new chapter in our nation's leadership, we offer you a prayer and a reminder to take a moment — even just a couple of breaths — to reflect on what you pray the next four years will bring.⁠

Head to the link in our bio for an original prayer for Inauguration from Rabbi Lizzi, Rabbi Deena and community members.⁠

This weekend, join our contemplative Shabbat service offering a slower paced, less-is-more, meditative approach to prayer. Anchored in the traditional liturgy, the service incorporates silent meditation, a handful of phrases from our liturgy, and Mishkan music to create a space to deepen your individual, emotionally resonant, Shabbat experience.⁠

This service will be facilitated by Mishkan Builders Lori and Monte Dube, who have both trained in Jewish Mindfulness Meditation through the Institute for Jewish Spirituality.⁠
