Oakland – Lake Merritt

About Us

Welcome to our new Moishe House! We’re so excited to build upon and add to an already thriving Jewish community here in the East Bay. Moishe House Oakland – Lake Merritt will be a place for young Jews from a variety of backgrounds to come together around fun, ritual, learning, and community. Our focus will be on providing a relaxing and accessible place for Jews who might be new to the East Bay or the Jewish community at all, whether they have come to the Bay to work for a non-profit or in tech, from the unaffiliated Jews to camp kids – we welcome all! We’re excited to provide enriching experiences in the local community, as well as warm community gatherings around Jewish ritual and holidays, Jewish learning, and delicious food.
