Because You’re Mishkan

At a time when so many of us crave a sense of hope, Mishkan is a testament to the power of building more goodness through Jewish practice and community. Our prayer, music, Jewish learning, wellness programs, the Mensch Academy, family programs, and social justice work have created a way in for 4,000 people this year alone.

If you want there to be a space for inspiration and community-building that brings our ancient Jewish values into newfound expression in radically inclusive, modern ways, and you believe that we must engage the next generation in that holy work, please donate today.

You are a part of our story – our family – and we hope you consider Mishkan part of yours. Your gift directly supports our ability to lead thousands of people toward greater purpose, connection, and inspiration. And that’s what it’s all about.

Many companies offer workplace giving opportunities, wherein they give a percentage of, or in some cases even triple, your gifts to eligible non-profits. Check to see if your company is one of them!
