VANCOUVER — Canada’s first Moishe House opened in Vancouver in May, with four young leaders eager to host and organize activities for the 20- and 30-something crowd.
“We’re trying to reach young Jews through events that are part educational, part social,” said Baruch Huberman, a native Vancouverite who is one of the residents at 536 E 20th St. in Vancouver. “The idea of Moishe House is to create a stronger community for people who may not feel comfortable or be part of any existing Jewish organization. And our activities are events-oriented, so we can attract people who have passions in the things that we do.”
