To gauge the success of the Moishe House model and measure organization- and demographic-wide trends, Moishe House conducts frequent comprehensive evaluations of young adults involved in Moishe House programming. The most recent evaluation was conducted in 2017-2018, with results published in the spring of 2018. You can see the Executive Summary of this evaluation here:
By reaching residents, resident alumni, Moishe House Without Walls (MHWOW) hosts, community members and past participants, we are able to get a finger on the pulse of the young adult Jewish community around the world. These evaluations measure changes in young adults during their time with Moishe House, including their involvement in the Jewish community, confidence as leaders, knowledge of Jewish ritual, and more. Very important developments in Moishe House’s history have emerged thanks to previous evaluations, including the creation of our Jewish Learning Retreats and the emergence of MHWOW, which was initially imagined exclusively as an engagement mechanism for resident alumni, but has grown and expanded to far more.
