  9. 9. The Moishe House Model The center of the approach is an open, welcoming home, created and facilitated by a group of 3-5 young adults (residents), ages 21-30. Moishe House residents come from a wide variety of Jewish backgrounds and are selected for their demonstrated leadership abilities and outgoing personalities. Working together as a team, the residents plan and host a diverse range of low- barrier religious, cultural and social events in their home, including Shabbat dinners, holiday celebrations, Repair the World programs, and more. In addition to planning their own programs, the house residents also support existing community resources by partnering with local Jewish organizations such as JCCs, synagogues, federations, and other institutional providers.

Our Mission To provide an open, tolerant, and welcoming environment where Jews of all backgrounds and degrees of observance (as well as non-Jews) can feel accepted for who they are and comfortable to explore aspects of Judaism with which they may not be familiar or may not fully understand.

Kashrut We will keep a kosher kitchen, both for the experience of doing so, as well as out of respect for guests who may keep strictly kosher You can still bring treyf into the house, but respect the sanctity of the kitchen (i.e. if you order in shrimp lo mein from Chinese delivery, use paper plates and plastic utensils).Wednesday, October 10, 12
  16. 16. Shabbat We will be keeping Shomer Shabbos as a house, as we will be hosting Shabbat dinner every week. If you have other plans outside the house, we will not guilt you about keeping Shomer Shabbos. We only ask that when you are at the house on Shabbat, you respect the holiness of our rest and try to experience it for yourself as well.Wednesday, October 10, 12
  17. 17. Interfaith Relationships We see no problem with interfaith relationships (of either a romantic or platonic nature) and ask that you show respect and tolerance for them as well. Above all else, our house will be a welcoming one.Wednesday, October 10, 12
