Moishe House San Francisco - located on Fell near Divisadero - blocks from Golden Gate Park's panhandle, Alamo Square and Hayes Valley, Haight Ashbury and Buena Vista Park. We've got a regular game night, are hosting shabbat dinners with songs around our backyard campfire, movie nights, barbecues, and are cooking all kinds of foods from different countries and much, much more. Our goal is for Moishe House to become the place for San Francisco Jews (and Jew-lovers) in their 20's to be. We welcome your participation whether it be as "that person that came to shabbat once" or as "that person who started the ridiculously cool project in our house." Email us and in the mean time we'll leave the mezuzah up for ya. To subscribe to our mailing list go to: http://eepurl.com/pJSE5
I moved to San Francisco from the East Coast in October of 2010. I knew that San Francisco had a lot to offer and I was ready to do some exploring. So i packed up my Honda Element and squeezed me, my sister and my dog, Luna, into the front and we drove cross country. I've started working freelance as a videographer and graphic designer and also tutor special needs kids. When there's a break in the action, I take Luna on adventures all over the bay area. After spending over a year living at Haight & Ashbury I am so excited to now be a part of Moishe House!

Be it through art, singing, meditation, socializing, or just reflection on life through the lens of compassion-Halley looks forward to sharing this journey with the Moishe House community!
Moved here from Chicago, where I recently finished grad school at the Institute of Design. I am an interaction designer, do some freelance graphic design on the side, and just joined a cool organization called Moishe House that plans free social events in the city every month; everything from beer tastings, hikes, and parties. I love listening to electronic music, KEXP 90.3 FM (Seattle radio), and my new fav shows are Breaking Bad and Portlandia. I’ll try anything twice (because everyone knows the first time is just for practice), I like hiking, biking, improv comedy, and I'm constantly on the prowl looking for the next thing to do.

I enjoy adventure travel, gastronomy, holistic health and nutrition, running, hip hop, and reading. I look forward to meeting soon!
