Moishe House Comes to Stockholm
The basic idea of Moishe House is that 2-3 young individuals move in together in a shared home which becomes the hub of a local micro-community of young Jews who participate in Moishe House programs. Moishe House residents are required to organize a number of events each month in return for which they receive rent subsidy and program budget from external foundations. During the session the Moishe House model will be presented, as well as two examples, the Budapest and Chisinau Moishe Houses. Lastly, the possibility of a Moishe House Stockholm will be discussed.
