Mishkon’s beautiful sanctuary fills for the High Holy Days, beginning with Rosh Hashana through the deeply spiritual Kol Nidre and Yom Kippur. Services feature a mix of traditional and contemporary liturgy, with the Hazzan and the Kol Mishkon Choir. Congregants are encouraged to participate in the services, and there are opportunities for Torah readings and personal reflections, spiritual side trips and alternative services. High Holy Days services at Mishkon Tephilo are open to all, regardless of membership status.

Shabbat on the Beach

We had so much fun getting together on the beach, singing songs, lighting candles, eating challah, and spending time with one another.

Shabbat at home

Surprising new connections were made at the Friday night Shabbat table as Mishkon members were matched to host families for a delightful evening of good food, camaraderie, and song. So grateful to the hosts who made it possible.

Our next Shabbat at Home will be in October. Stay tuned for exact date and time.

New YouTube Page

Mishkon has a new YouTube page! We are working to add content, but for now we have an adorable playlist titled "Shabbat Songs for Kids" and zoom recordings from previous Shabbat services.
