A international organization that serves post-college Jewish millennials has opened its third Atlanta area location.
For the unfamiliar: Each Moishe House is a home facilitated by three to five residents who host numerous Jewish programs for their peers a month in exchange for a subsidy and program budget supported by various organizations.
The FAQ says it is a non-denominational, pluralistic Jewish organization with a mission “to create vibrant Jewish communities” — but all are welcome.
Residents are chosen through an application process, and are responsible for finding and maintaining their own home. Most live there for one to three years.
The program was founded in 2006 with a home in Oakland, California, where four people hosted Shabbat dinners.
The Buckhead residents – Amy Abelson, 28; Cassidy Artz, 25; and Matthew Spruchman, 25 – will host at least 60 programs annually, including a Shabbat dinner on Fridays and future “Challah at Your Hawks” nights.
They are “an adventurous trio of recent Atlanta transplants, providing an inclusive environment for Jewish exploration and growth,” according to the website.
You can email them for information about attending.
The Buckhead home is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta and The Marcus Foundation, along with support from multiple families, a recent news release said.
