Mishpacha means "Family" in Hebrew. At Temple Sholom we embrace a family of events once a month when this Community Group, one of the temple’s largest, hosts its special Shabbat Service. 

Shabbat Mishpacha Schedule:

  • 5:00-5:30 PM - Tot Shabbat (when applicable, see below) invites families with children ages 0-5, including Gan Shalom families, to join our clergy and educators in singing, celebrating, and praying together. 

  • 5:30-6:00 PM - A Community-Style Family Dinner is held in Bettie Port Hall. There is always food suited for the kids and we offer a kosher option. 

  • 6:15-7:30 PM - Friday Night Shabbat Services begin. This lively congregational event includes students from different grades helping lead the community in a variety of prayers and songs from the bimah

  • 7:30 PM - The night concludes with a family-friendly oneg, the perfect start to your Shabbat.


Of course, there are other opportunities to engage with our Mishpacha community that include Mishpacha meet-ups around the city, family-oriented service projects, and our Mishpacha Winter Camp Getaway at URJ Camp OSRUI in Wisconsin.  

Above all, Mishpacha grows the next generation of Jews by providing all involved a warm, inviting place to embrace their extended Jewish family!
