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!
December 13 – 7:00 p.m.
At this monthly Family Service, we will be celebrating Birthday Blessings. If your child was born in December and will be at services, please call the office at (203) 288-3877.
December 15 – 10:00 a.m.
Our Chevra Hands Caring Shawl Group is in action. The group makes shawls, lap quilts and blankets to give to newborns, seniors and others for whom being wrapped in love would be a comfort. Anyone interested is welcome.
December 20 – 6:00 p.m.
Families with children ages 6 and under, don’t miss Tot Shabbat! At the short service, we’ll have blessings, read Torah, sing songs and hear stories. Tot Shabbat is open to the community.
