Are you a Jew, Jewish or Jew-ish? Led by Rabbi Stiefel
Common Roots Cafe Common Room,
2558 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55405

Are you more likely to say you are Jewish rather than that you are a Jew? Discuss the nuances of the words and the implications vis-à-vis identity. Learn about terms used in the past, such as Hebrews and Israelites, and how we got to the words used to describe those who consider themselves part of Judaism today.

Saturday August 26, 9:30 AM - Noon
Shabbat Morning Service

Join us for a tikkun olam (social justice) focused Shabbat service, led by Rabbi Shawn Zevit. Rabbi Shawn’s name might sound familiar. He was Mayim Rabim’s student rabbi in 1997-98 and he also visited us in his past role as Director of Congregational Services for the Reconstructionist movement. He currently is the Lead Rabbi at Mishkan Shalom Synagogue in Philadelphia. An accomplished singer and guitarist, Rabbi Shawn creates memorable Reconstructionist services.  The service will be followed by Kiddush and dairy vegetarian potluck lunch.

About Us

Mayim Rabim Congregation, founded in 1992, is affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist movement. We are an urban Jewish community that comprises people of diverse ages, abilities, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, and financial resources. We strive to create and sustain spaces that enhance the practice of Judaism in the contemporary world; to that end, we are a house of prayer, of study, and tikkun olam (the repair of the world). As Reconstructionists, we view Judaism as an evolving religious civilization and claim a shared heritage with all Jews.

We are an inclusive, heymish congregation and we welcome visitors!
