Mishkan Torah Synagogue, Greenbelt - Rabbi Jonathan Cohen


www.gazette.net

Rabbi Jonathan Cohen, of Greenbelt's Mishkan Torah Synagogue, says the congregation's hands-on approach to getting things done dates back to the 1950s when they built their own church "brick by brick" rather than hire laborers to do the work.
The most common command in the Torah has nothing to do with what to eat or how to dress, says Jonathan Cohen, rabbi for the Mishkan Torah Synagogue in Greenbelt. Instead, he says, it's a call for kindness and hospitality. "We're to be kind to strangers because we were once strangers in Egypt," said Cohen, who's led the synagogue for 12 years. Members, he said, take those words to heart by providing a welcoming atmosphere for visitors and offering events for the entire community. The synagogue's unpretentious attitude fits right in with Greenbelt's egalitarian environment, Cohen said. Three-quarters of the congregation's 160 families come from Montgomery County, Washington, D.C., or other locations because they appreciate Mishkan Torah's down-to-earth approach. "When new members have an idea, we say, ‘Great, when can you get started?' instead of ‘How dare you?'" Cohen said. The congregation is also one of the few in the United States that is duly affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist Federation and the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism. The synagogue has found a way to compromise and adapt its services to accommodate both movements, members say. The idea of using everyone's input and handiwork dates all the way to when members and non-Jewish local residents built the synagogue brick by brick back in the 1950s, Cohen said. "The motto was, ‘Join Mishkan Torah and learn a trade,'" he said. "We don't house the homeless participants at the synagogue because of our dietary restrictions," Cohen said. Instead, Greenbelt Community Church serves as the host, and Mishkan Torah volunteers go to the church to help out on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day while church members celebrate with their families. Learning to work with people who are different is challenging but essential in today's world of technology, terrorism and instant media access. "If we don't learn to live together, we could destroy each other," Cohen said.
