When Thinking About Jewish Community, Who Is in Your Circle?

Around the world, MHWOW Hosts gather their peers for Jewish experiences that range from Friday night Shabbat dinners, holidays, learning events, and cultural celebrations. MHWOW Hosts decide who they want to invite, where they want to host, what they want to explore in Judaism, and when they want to gather.

MHWOW hosts:

  • Make an impact in their communities, one program at a time
  • Feel a sense of accomplishment, pride, and joy by hosting others 
  • Thrive on Jewish engagement and connection
