In an attempt to clean up and organize I placed an ad on Craigslist offering various items that needed to find new homes. Long past the days when Craigslist was new and exciting and anything could sell, I didn’t get very many responses to my offer for some free “lightly used furniture.” I became a little discouraged and was realizing I needed a plan B to get rid of my “stuff”, until I got an email from one person who seemed interested. After many emails back and forth and finally a phone number exchange he came to retrieve his new found treasure and I was relieved that my items found a new home. While loading the bed into his minivan he mentioned that he lived at the Moishe House in Los Angeles, and briefly explained to me what it was.
I had never heard of Moishe House and was instantly intrigued. What a cool organization! If only I was a “twenty something” year old. Moishe House creates home-based communities for those in their twenty’s, by training, supporting and sponsoring young Jewish leaders. According to their website there are 45 houses in 14 countries.
