A note from Rabbi Marcia Plumb

Welcome to Mishkan Tefila! 

I am delighted to welcome you to our family.  We have a special ‘Mishkan magic’ and I hope you experience it.  We base our community on six Mussar values: Respect (Kavod), Patience (Savlanut), Joy (Simcha), Enthusiasm (Zerizut), Seeing the Good (Hakarat Hatov) and Seeing the Godliness in Everyone (B’Tzelem Elohim). 

Our aim is for everyone who connects with Mishkan will grow intellectually, spiritually, Jewishly, and socially.  I hope you will too.  I, and the community, are here to support you and each other as we make our way through life’s journey. 

May you feel blessed; may we be blessed by you.
