Moishe House


Moishe House

Moishe House is now the global leader in peer-led Jewish young adult engagement. Through three primary program models, every year, thousands of young Jews experience innovative, engaging, exciting Jewish programming. All programming is planned and executed by their peers, creating countless opportunities for young adults to connect with their own Jewish identities, their friends and their wider communities.

The first model is Moishe Houses – a shared home where 3-5 residents live together and host 1-2 programs a week for their peers.

The second is Moishe House Without Walls (MHWOW), which mpowers Jewish young adults ages 22-32 to build Jewish community by planning and hosting creative Jewish experiences for their friends and peers outside of a Moishe House.

The third model is Jewish Learning Retreats, which are multi-day, immersive learning experiences that train Jewish young adults worldwide in ritual and program skills.

Moishe House is providing an important pathway for young adults to take part in — and create — Jewish homes and communities.
