In late 2011, Moishe House received the results from a two-year external evaluation by the TCC Group. Two major findings included:
Young Jewish adults in the Moishe House network were seeking additional content-rich and skill-building Jewish educational experiences; and
The majority of Moishe House residents did not grow up doing the types of Jewish rituals and experiences that they are now leading.
In short, while the Moishe House model created the demand (tens of thousands of young adults participating in Jewish life every year), in order to enhance the quality of the Jewish content, it was critical that the residents receive the tools and resources to be effective peer educators.
