Moishe House is an international organization providing meaningful Jewish experiences to young adults in their twenties. With 50 houses worldwide, Moishe House engages more than 50,000 attendees each year through a creative, low-barrier, cost-effective and scalable model for building vibrant, peer-based Jewish communities and learning opportunities for Jewish young adults.
Given that emerging adults are the true experts on their generation, Moishe House trains, supports and sponsors young leaders to create Jewish community—on their own terms—for their peers, in ways that are meaningful and relevant.
- The center of the approach is an open, welcoming home, created and facilitated by a group of 3-5 young adults (residents).
- Moishe House residents come from a wide variety of Jewish backgrounds and are selected for their demonstrated leadership abilities and outgoing personalities.
- Working together as a team, the residents plan and host a diverse range of low-barrier religious, cultural and social events in their home, including Shabbat dinners, holiday celebrations, Repair the World programs, sporting events and more.
- In addition to planning their own programs, the house residents also support existing community resources by partnering with local Jewish organizations such as JCCs, synagogues, federations, and other institutional providers.
