“I love ‘playing hostess’ and being a MHWOW host gives me the flexibility to be more creative with things I plan with/for friends - and it allows me to open up my home/plans to so many more people.”
– Leslie Rogoff, MHWOW host since May 2015


Moishe House Without Walls works closely with Jewish federations, foundations, and donors to create specific focus cities in which to build MHWOW. By specially recruiting, training, and organizing hosts in a target community MHWOW is able to boost Jewish young adult activity in cities large and small. In 2015, San Diego saw 37 hosts create 120 programs for 741 unique attendees. Other expansion cities include Washington D.C., Chicago, Portland, and Dallas.


MHWOW partners with organizations that train Jewish young adults as leaders through immersive experiences like Pardes and Urban Adamah. Alumni of these immersive experiences are automatically eligible to become MHWOW hosts. This partnership is an incredible way to build an alumni community and allow young leaders to take the learned skills to create experiences for their peers.
“Helping the MHWOW community of DC grow has been incredibly fulfilling. We have a wide variety of interests and religious backgrounds and together, we can reach so many underserved people.”
-Michele Leah, MHWOW host since April 2015
