The Congregation Mishkan Israel is a warm, caring community, dedicated to creating a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere in which everyone can enhance their knowledge and love of Judaism and deepen one’s identification and commitment to Judaism through congregational life. Our members come from an array of religious, cultural and ethnic backgrounds, and all have found a special home at CMI. Whether you and your partner are both Jewish or are interfaith, we welcome you to experience the warmth and spirituality of the Reform tradition at Mishkan Israel.

CMI staff and our Membership Committee are available year-round to answer your questions about membership, show you around our beautiful building and grounds, introduce you to congregants, and join you at services. We host an annual open house before the High Holy Days to allow prospective members to talk with representatives from the Temple and to attend services in a communal setting.

Special introductory rates are available to give new members a chance to experience all that CMI has to offer. We understand that some of our community members are facing increasing difficulties during these economic times: the doors of Congregation Mishkan Israel are open—arrangements can be made, no one will be turned away. We invite you to join us!
