Moishe House

Back to Vibrant Jewish Life for Young Adults Page


Moishe House, a pluralistic international organization, provides meaningful Jewish experiences to young adults in their 20s. Their innovative model trains, supports, and sponsors young Jewish leaders as they create vibrant home-based communities for themselves and their peers.

Each Moishe House is led by 3-5 charismatic and passionate adults (residents) from a variety of Jewish backgrounds and observance levels (from Orthodox to “culturally Jewish”), committed to spending their free time facilitating community for their peers through programs such as Shabbat dinners, book clubs, and sporting events.

EJF Philanthropies provided a grant to open 11 new Moishe Houses across the United States. The intention of this grant, which fully funded 11 houses for three years each, was to be a catalyst for local communities to see the value of the program and to begin supporting the houses on their own. As the third year of EJF/P funding comes to a close, EJF/P is awaiting the outcomes of efforts that Moishe House has undertaken to garner local support for these expansion houses.
