About Us

Moishe House Mosaic-Fairfax, founded in 2019, is located in Merrifield, VA. We’re a 10-15 minute walk from the Orange line’s Dunn Loring Station and near the Mosaic District. We host a variety of events every month including our popular movement series and hikes, signature bi-monthly queer Torah study, Shabbat dinner, and more! As a Moishe House, our events are for Jewish adults between the ages of 21 and 32. We’re dedicated to providing an inclusive Jewish community for all in our home. Please reach out if there’s anything we can do to make our space and events more accommodating for you. We can’t wait to welcome you to MoFax!

We Are Looking for New Residents!

Moishe House is seeking young adults between the ages of 22-32 who are excited about living with others and creating a Jewish community for their peers.
