Mishkan Torah is a friendly, down-to-earth, community-oriented congregation. We offer something for everyone, young, old, single, married, and both Jewish and interfaith families. Our strong traditions of education and member participation provide a wide variety of opportunities for involvement.
We are affiliated with two movements: Jewish Reconstructionist Communities and the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism. Our Rabbi is a Reconstructionist. Those who aren't familiar with Reconstructionist Judaism may find this discussion of the underlying philosophy of interest.
Mishkan Torah is small enough for members to get to know each other yet large enough to provide a variety of programs. Members come not only from Greenbelt, but also from throughout the MD/DC area. We have children's education from kindergarten through high school, social action, adult programs and education, a Sisterhood and Men's Club, a Choir, and a library. Besides our regular services, we have a number of special events throughout the year.
Please come and visit our haimishe schul. We are handicapped accessible. We have three handicapped accessible parking spaces in front of the building and a ramp that makes the bimah accessible with a wheel chair. We also have large print Siddurim for Shabbat services and large print Machzorim for the High Holidays.

Mishkan Torah offers a number of membership categories to fit the needs of persons at different stages of their lives. Costs vary by category to make membership affordable to all. We'd like to welcome new members to our Jewish community and promise that they will feel 'at home' quickly at Mishkan Torah.
