Moishe House Marks 10-Year Anniversary Of Engaging Young Jews
Detroit City Moishe House hosted 40 young Jewish professionals for Shabbat dinner Friday, Sept. 23, featuring food from Slows barbecue, Detroit Vegan Soul, Bucharest, Leo’s Coney Island, Sister Pie, Star Bakery and Chef Cari Kosher Catering. As if the great food wasn’t cause enough for celebration, the gathering also was part of the Moishe House Global Shabbat.
Fueled by enormous demand for peer-led, home-based programming from young adults and their Jewish communities, Moishe House has become the global leader of Jewish life for young adults.
Metro Detroit is home to two Moishe Houses: The Detroit City Moishe House in Indian Village is a hub for young Jewish professionals to explore the amazing people and places throughout Detroit. MoHoRO (Moishe House Royal Oak) MoHoRO’s goal is to create a sense of Jewish community in Royal Oak and Metro Detroit that is currently missing for young professionals. Both of the houses provide programming and community for Jews in their 20s.
In honor of Moishe House’s 10th anniversary worldwide, more than 80 houses from Michigan to Argentina to Ukraine shared dinner, drinks and prayers to honor Shabbat and the Moishe House community that’s been built together.
Members of Moishe House Royal Oak joined in the Sept. 23 celebration.
