Congregation Mishkan Tefila in the Fall

Congregation Mishkan Tefila is the oldest Conservative synagogue in New England.
Its growth parallels the remarkable development of the Boston Jewish Community, from a handful of immigrants to a vibrant and responsive component of American society. Through the years, Mishkan Tefila has played an integral role in promoting and strengthening Judaism and in serving as a cohesive force in the community-at-large.

Music has played an integral role throughout Mishkan Tefila’s history, including as described in the 2015 American Jewish Archives Journal article “Lenny was Family … at Mishkan Tefila”: The Importance of Leonard Bernstein’s Synagogue.
