MISSION STATEMENT

 

Mishkon Tephilo is a participatory, egalitarian congregation. We strive to meet the religious, spiritual, educational, and social needs of a diverse membership within the framework of  Judaism. The commitment and participation of all congregants is to be nurtured, with the understanding that all contribute value to our community. We value full participation regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, age, or marital status. Mishkon Tephilo welcomes interfaith families with open arms.

We view ourselves as partnering with God to lift our world by committing ourselves to Torah (dynamic learning of the Teachings of Judaism), Avodah (active acts of worship, both spiritual and ethical), and Gemilut Chassadim (acts of loving kindness).

We are bound together by traditional Jewish experience through the following values:

  • Spirituality: Members engage in prayer and study experiences that bring them closer to God and to each other.
  • Community: We are bound together by a Brit Tzibur (covenant with community) of sharing celebration, solace, and support throughout the Jewish life-cycle.
  • Torah: We are an educational center for the teaching and study of Jewish texts, rituals, practices, and values.

Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam: We understand our obligations as Jews to care for and support the Jewish people, the State of Israel, and the community in which we live.
