Upcoming Events

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.

Adult Ed: Who’s Afraid of Music?
June 11th, 11:00am – 12:30pm

Join Zoom Meeting

For many in the Mishkan Ha’am community, music is an essential part of their Jewish prayer experience or cultural heritage. So it may be surprising to discover that the early rabbis sought to limit or even prohibit music. For his last adult ed class, Solomon will lead us through original research into these texts, and what they might reveal about music’s power and purpose. We’ll use these texts as a lens for considering our own experience of Jewish music today.
