My brother wants to open a Moishe House in Boulder, Colorado – so he made this video as part of the application process, I just hope they don’t deduct points for being religious. From what I understand the only fully kosher Moishe House in the country is in Portland, Oregon – I know this only because my brother wanted to set me up with the founder.
Don’t know what a Moishe House is?
In January, 2006, Moishe House opened its first house in Oakland, California, with four Jewish friends who were all excited by the idea of creating a vibrant Jewish community out of their own home. Since opening its first house, Moishe House now has 27 houses in 8 countries that serve as hubs for the young adult Jewish community with an emphasis on ages 21-30. Moishe House provides a rent subsidy and a program budget for a handful of young, eager, innovative Jews to live in and create their vision of an ideal Jewish communal space.
Each house is unique in its programming and personality. The programming offered in each house includes social service programs, religious opportunities, inter-cultural dialogue, book clubs, Yiddish classes, outdoor adventures, and much more. Each Moishe House hosts between 50 and 300 young Jewish adults each month. The programming of each house is shared through the online Moishe House community as well as through annual retreats for Moishe House residents. Programs are evaluated by national Moishe House staff at the beginning of each month.
