This past Labor Day I stood on the roof of our Moishe House here in LA and looked over the eighty or so Jewish young adults crammed around the pool in our not overly-spacious backyard and thought to myself – someone, somewhere pays for us to do this. Some generous, philanthropic person somewhere, who I’ll probably never have the chance to meet, helped make it possible for me and eighty of my Jewish peers to sit around the pool at our beautiful house on Labor Day eating hot dogs together, drinking, schmoozing, splashing each other – it’s like someone filmed a commercial for “fun young adult Jewish life” in my back yard. For this blog post I want to talk about why this is important, and about how I’ve been able to find meaning in all the fun I’ve been having here in LA, in addition to the wonderful Jewish programming we do.
