Hoboken, NJ - February 8, 2010 - A group of 25 young adults gathered Friday evening, February 5, in Hoboken at Moishe House, an organization which provides programs for Jewish young adults. The residents of each Moishe House are a group of twentysomethings from Jewish backgrounds ranging from liberal to traditional. Each hosts between 50 and 300 young Jews per month, and there are homes across the United States as well as internationally.
Attendees included Moishe House residents, first-timers, and regulars, as well as many members of Jersey Tribe, an organization providing meaningful volunteer, social, and philanthropic activities for young Jewish adults in New Jersey. Israeli emissaries Natasha Gluzman and Yotam Zach spoke about their families, their experiences in the Israel Defense Forces, and how they found their way to Israel. A traditional Shabbat meal was provided, and attendees participated in a lively discussion with the emissaries.
"The Shabbat Dinner was a great opportunity for both Jersey Tribe and Moishe House to partner and share their strengths. We thank Moishe House for their hospitality and hope their participants will join us at a future Jersey Tribe event," said Rebecca Missel, founder and President of Jersey Tribe.
Jersey Tribe members range in age from 22 to 40 (give or take a year or two),
have diverse Jewish backgrounds, come from towns across northern and
central New Jersey and are a mix of singles, couples and marrieds. We
typically have two events per month and we welcome suggestions and
help with activities and nonprofit partners.
