Mishpacha is for parents who find that what they learned as Jewish children isn't enough to build their own Jewish families. A starting point for a spiritual journey, Mishpacha provides guideposts to Jewish belief, practice and community, as well as a group of fellow travelers to join you on your journey.
Mishpacha consists of this Web site -- an introductory guide to Jewish life -- and private virtual communities. The guide aims to survey the most important ideas of Jewish life, practice and culture, always asking the question: Is this relevant for our lives?
The virtual communities provide an opportunity for groups of parents to come together on-line, encountering each other and their Jewish identities. Each community spends three months exploring Judaism with a professional facilitator, after which they can decide how to continue on their own.
Mishpacha is a project of the Memorial Foundation for Jewish Culture.
Discuss your Jewish journey with us and other parents.
Our private virtual communities enable you to join other parents in an-line exploration of Jewish identity and practice. Discover how Internet message boards and chat can create lasting friendships.
