Moishe House provides community to Clevelanders

By Courtney Byrnes – Cleveland Jewish News

As the new residents of Moishe House Cleveland host several events each month, they aim to provide space for young Jewish adults in Cleveland looking for community.

Victoria Cohen, Suzanne Berman and Ari Schraer have served as residents of Moishe House Cleveland in downtown Cleveland since September as they have planned events and outings for an underserved age group. Moishe House Cleveland is supported by the David and Inez Myers Foundation and the Jewish Federation of Cleveland.

Young Jewish Clevelanders at Moishe House partnered with Repair the World Cleveland to make blankets for the local homeless community.

“Part of our responsibility is to cultivate a welcoming Jewish space for those who, maybe they do have one (a community), but they’re looking for additional friends, or maybe they just want to come to a yoga class or a Shabbat dinner,” Cohen, 25, told the Cleveland Jewish News. “It’s really to create an open space for anyone in their 20s and 30s to come and be a part of a Jewish community.”
