Covid Policy
Based on current trends, the availability of the bivalent booster, and the policies of similar communal institutions in the area, Mishkan Ha’am’s new policy is as follows:
– At all programs, masks are no longer required. We still encourage mask usage, but will respect everyone’s individual choice.
– If you are not feeling well, we ask that you not attend events in person.
– We encourage people to follow public health guidelines regarding vaccination and testing.
We will continue to monitor and adapt our policy as conditions evolve. If you have questions or feedback, or are interested in being involved in future policy discussions, please write to mishkanhaam@gmail.com.

The 150 Psalms found in the Hebrew Bible have provided inspiration for people of many faiths and are included throughout the Jewish liturgy. From celebrations to funerals, the Psalms help capture the full range of human emotions and experiences. At this session, we will explore excerpts from the Psalms, and focus on how an analysis of the Hebrew can bring to light the poetry and depth of the texts. We will learn about the historical context and liturgical diversity of the Psalms as well.
