Our name comes from the Mishkan in the Torah – the traveling desert prayer tent – that enabled people to bring their creative selves to a community-building project. Some people were weavers, some were architects, some skilled workers and some were holy shleppers. Everyone gave financially. Together, they built something holy and beautiful that harnessed the best of their creativity with a common vision for collective spiritual growth and transformation.
That’s what we’re doing here in Chicago, and want the right people in the room with us to build this thing. We hope it’s you.
We call our members “Builders.” These are the people who say, “I believe in this community and want to be a part of ensuring its place on the Chicago Jewish spiritual landscape.”
