Holistic, and welcoming. Non judgmental. You can be yourself and you're welcome. I found that I learn't a lot about tollerance and genuine attempt to connect with others and God
I have attended several events and volunteered for a night ministry outing. The folks tend to be in their 40s or older, and very enthusiastic. Rabbi Menachem is quite interesting - he reaches out equally to the homeless, to Burning Man participants, and to the unaffiliated in Chicago.
The accessibility , joyfulness and soulfulness of my Mitziut experiences are a treasure to me. They are so respectful of all and go right to the soul. It is spontaneous and divine. The ecstasy and joyfulness enveloped all the participants and the Rabbi's humility and honest teaching and expression of the human condition was profound and accessible to all. The fabulous music, singing, drumming and dancing were remarkable. A Seeker's Dream! Any Jew, with or without experience could feel welcome here. How iportant is that?!? That was my Rosh Hashonah experience there. My first experience at Mitziut was at a Shabbat on the beach led by the Rosh Chodesh women of the group. It was also quite wonderful. In my view Mitziut is on to something our religion needs. They seem to give a lot of support to their member's individual pursuits as well; there is jut a basic respect, without hierarchy, for all. Nor do they neglect tzedakah. Any help they can get will be well placed.
