Review for Mitziut, Chicago, IL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Mitzuit is a great community. There are genuine, caring, and down to earth people here. The environment is relaxed, non-judgemental, and very welcoming. Rabbi Menachem Cohen is wonderful...he is truly one-of-a-kind. He approaches services with an educational and spiritual focus grounded in his studies. He is relaxed, open, and passionate about his work. He and Wendi are welcoming and deeply care about the community. This is a wonderful community, the first Jewish community I have ever felt really comfortable in. I wish there were more funds so Rabbi Menachem could be a full time Rabbi...which would benefit all of us the most.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Feeling comfortable being myself for the first time ever in a Jewish community during Shabbat services or High Holidays (and I am Jewish!).

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Hire Rabbi Menachem as the full-time Rabbi and hire an admin. asst. Also, Mitzuit has the potential to change the face of the Jewish community on a larger scale, to a more accepting, non-judgmental, progressive, evolved, conscious, and welcoming one.

Ways to make it better...

There was one meeting place in a neighborhood that feels safe at night.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Lack of funding. Rabbi Menachem would do the most good being a full time Rabbi here. Also, Mitziut needs a regular meeting place in an area with parking and close to public transit.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Rabbi Menachem is a gem. With some funding, he could make an immense difference in this community and in this world.
