All who share our Statement of Principles are warmly welcomed to  join us. For more information, please contact Rabbi Shawn and staff.

Below are highlights of upcoming services and programs. For our complete schedule, please see the calendar.  For the latest from our rabbi, staff and members, check out Kol Shalom, our monthly newsletter.

A message from Rabbi Shawn Zevit and Board Leadership:

"Mishkan Shalom condemns the recent attack on Israelis by Hamas and joins in solidarity with the people of Israel. We hold the leaders of Hamas and other militant groups responsible for this senseless loss of life, and we demand international accountability for these actions. We pray for the safety of all those taken into captivity and call for their immediate release.  

We also acknowledge the preceding decades of loss of life of Israelis and Palestinians and that violence often leads to more violence. Over two million Palestinian civilians in Gaza, have lived in oppressive conditions for years, and thousands have been killed and many more displaced. Families across Israel, in the West Bank, and Gaza are terrified and in mourning. 

We pray for a swift end to this violence and humanitarian aid corridors, and we hope that even further conflagration and suffering for Israelis and Palestinians can be prevented. Given the ever-changing situation, for more resources and places to contribute, please go to the Reconstructing Judaism movement's website:  Reconstructing Judaism and Mishkan Shalom's Collection of reflections."
