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
