We’re in the business of creating spirituality and inspiration for all people at all times… but for many of us, we become particularly spiritually awake and connected during transformational moments in life: the birth or coming of age of a child, marriage, divorce, death, and other remarkable “lifecycle” moments.
Some non-traditional moments to honor could include hanging a mezzuzah on a new home, or mourning a miscarriage– things that you can do in the privacy of your home yet supported by a wider community. At Mishkan we want to help you honor those moments in creative ways that connect you to tradition, community, and help elevate your unique story.
We are thrilled to build community with people from vastly diverse backgrounds in a non-judgmental, affirming space. Full access to the range of lifecycle ceremonies are part of benefits of Buildership at Mishkan, which is available to all people. We also strongly recommend coming to check out a Shabbat service at Mishkan to get to know the community better.
We look forward to meeting you!
