WELCOME TO MISHKAN ISRAEL
More than a place. We’re a community.
Serving the greater New Haven area since 1840, Congregation Mishkan Israel is a progressive Reform synagogue known for its demographically diverse, socially active congregation. Located in Hamden, we are a group of individuals who enjoy connecting with people who have an interest in spiritual growth, community involvement and celebration. We welcome you and hope that you will join us!
August 8 – 8:00 a.m.
Join people of faith from across New Haven for a wonderful day of interfaith work sponsored by I Wage Peace. Rabbi Immerman has been working with clergy from around the community to live our values through several opportunists for tikkun olam. Sign up and find details at iwagepeace.org and then join us for a celebration on the green as students from Israel and Palestine, the Jerusalem Peace Builders, who come to New Haven for two weeks of dialogue and non-violence workshops.
Also join us at Shabbat services on Friday, August 23rd when we will welcome the students from Jerusalem Peace builders to CMI and hear them reflect on their experience.
