Founded in 2006, Moishe House launched when four Jewish 20-somethings began hosting Shabbat dinners in Oakland, California for their friends and networks. Fueled by enormous demand for peer-led, home-based programming from young adults and their Jewish communities, Moishe House has become the global leader of Jewish life for young adults.
With 85 houses in 20 countries, our model trains, supports and empowers young Jewish leaders as they create meaningful experiences in their local communities for themselves and their peers. Our approach is becoming an increasingly recognized avenue for young adult engagement that is scalable and easily replicated. In 2015, our young adult leaders engaged 43,000+ unique participants through 7,400+ programs.
