We Are Proud To Highlight Our Featured Partner - Moishe House
Moishe House is a pluralistic international organization that provides meaningful Jewish experiences to young adults in their 20s. The unique and innovative Moishe House model trains, supports, and sponsors young Jewish leaders as they create vibrant home-based communities for themselves and their peers. Moishe Houses were created specifically for Jews in their twenties because the Jewish community has created infrastructure for engaging Jews from early childhood through college and then again once they choose to start families. Moishe House recognizes and seeks to fill a major gap in which there were almost no appropriate organized venues for post-collegiate Jews in their twenties. Moishe House was created to meet the needs of this growing demographic by cultivating a meaningful and attractive pathway from Jewish college life to Jewish family life.
Founded in 2006, Moishe House began in the U.S. and has seen much success with establishing and maintaining healthy and thriving communities in North America. As word about the Moishe House models spreads, young Jewish adults from around the world are expressing their interest in starting their own Moishe House in their own communities. Outside of North America, there are currently Moishe Houses in Argentina, Australia, Bulgaria, China, England, Hungary, Israel, Latvia, Poland, Republic of Moldova, Russia, and Ukraine. Last year alone, these houses held a combined 1,351 programs (such as Shabbat dinners, learning retreats, book clubs, and sporting events) engaging 25,604 in total attendance. Additionally, Moishe House is currently working to open houses in Berlin, Cape Town, Paris, Prague and Sao Paulo. Beyond these houses that are in the works, Moishe House continues to receive other serious inquiries from Jewish young adults on a consistent basis that are requesting new locations. In total, Moishe House has more than 69 houses worldwide and receives weekly requests from communities around the world who are interested in starting their own Moishe House community.
Recently, the Sabrina Merage Foundation partnered with Moishe House to establish the Global Community Fund to meet the increasing demand for their services around the world. Through this fund, Moishe House is committed to raising the funding necessary to bring these vibrant home-based Jewish communities to all.
