What Is a Moishe House?

A Moishe House is a place where young adults in their 20s come together and create vibrant Jewish communities. There are more than 100 communities in over 25 countries around the world. Each Moishe House community is uniquely shaped by a group of residents who live together and host programs for their peers. How is this possible? We hook them up with a partial rent subsidy, programming budget, educational resources and training.

Connect with your local Moishe House community and join them for Shabbat dinners, Jewish learning programs, holiday celebrations and so much more.

"Since being involved with Moishe House, I really understand what it means to meet Shabbat in a "home" setting. And it's so inspiring! And now I understand that I can gather my friends from the community and help them feel inspired and comfortable in a Jewish home, sharing the atmosphere, knowledge, and traditions with them."

- Alexandra Gorbataya, Moishe House Chisinau (Moldova) Resident
