Mission:
At Mitziut we find how the text, liturgy and holidays teach us to live in the world today. Many of us having searched elsewhere, we foster community and Divine experience by singing, dancing, praying, drumming, working for social justice and eating together. We welcome all regardless of race, class, religion, sex, sexuality, gender and gender identity, age, ability or knowledge and experience of Judaism.

Current offerings include Shabbos and holidays, a Jewish drum circle, classes and spiritual guidance. We also have started going to festivals, like Burning Man, and setting up Jewish camps and hope to do more.

Other future plans include a community center with such elements as a kosher cafe, copy center, computers, book swap library, offices for local non-profits and other needs of the Jewish and local community.  A monthly spiritual recharge for social justice workers, non-profits workers and activists is in the works. We also envision a study, prayer and meditation program for those who want to engage thusly several hours a day. These folks would potentially help run the community center as part of their program.

There's ample room and need to grow and create. But given... more »

Mitziut is a very special organization. After attending one service, I was hooked. I really appreciate the way the community welcomed me, my husband, and many others I introduced to Mitziut over the years. This community not only was beneficial in helping me connect more to my Jewish identity, ... more »
