Lay-Led Small Groups

It can feel intimidating to walk into a Shabbat service on a Friday night and face a room full of strangers. We have a remedy for that feeling: small groups. Whether you’re looking to connect with folks who share your interests or passions, engage in ongoing Jewish learning and discussion with others, or try your hand at leading an event or series of your own, we’ve got you covered. Initiated and led by volunteer Builders (members at Mishkan), Mishkan’s small groups are a place for you to find your niche and create meaningful relationships with other community members in a more intimate setting.
