Moishe House, a network of 25 homes serving as grassroots community centers for young Jewish adults ages 21-30, will open a new center in Denver by the end of this year.
Moishe House opened its first house in 2006 and has since expanded to nine countries. It offered 2,073 programs in 2008.
Our experience with this age group is that they are excited about the opportunity to create Jewish communities for themselves and their peers, says Moishe House executive director David Cygielman.
Moishe House is looking forward to becoming a mainstay in Denvers Jewish community.
Engaging Jews in their 20s is an important part of Rose Community Foundations work, says Sheila Bugdanowitz, foundation president and CEO. Moishe House offers an innovative way for younger Jews to remain connected to each other and to their Judaism. We are excited to fund this program in Denver.
Moishe House is currently identifying Denver residents who want to help create their vision of an ideal Jewish community.
