Mishpachah, Inc. is an auditioned group of high school students who participate in this community drama/music group. The group's unique name "Mishpachah" is a Hebrew word that means family or clan. "Mish" as they are called, is known for their radical and exceptional style. Mishpachah is a non-profit organization which is governed by a board of trustees and officers. The group began as a corporation in 1990, although the group has been together since 1982. Until 1989, the group functioned under the guidance of a church. In an effort to reach more teens and expand the outreach of the group, Mishpachah formed it's own corporation and has been self-supported since. Although the group is a "Christian" organization, the group is not tied to any specific denomination.In the past, the group has performed at various churches, civic organizations, youth events, Cincinnati Convention Center, various church camps, Eden Park, shopping malls, high schools, Six Flags Over Mid America, Kings Island Amusement Park, and Disney World. They have toured to: Florida, Colorado, Texas, North & South Carolina, Indiana, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Michigan, New York, Louisiana, Wisconsin, Virginia, and Ohio.
