Personal Reflection - Josh of mohoden

On the Moishe House program and community of Denver-
I'm impressed. Our success ove three months has shown that the Moishe House model is indeed very practical - it's make sense - and with some effort and funding, is very easily replicable in cities and communities all over.

Our community is growing, and full of great people that really appreciate what we have to offer. You can learn more about us by doing a google search of IJN Moishe House Denver. There's a pretty good article there about the three of us that has really helped expand our outreach.

On life -
I moved to Denver from nyc almost 6 months ago to start a PhD program - it's a one-of-a-kind interdisciplinary program focused on Sustainable Urban Infrastructure - see www.cudenver.edu/IGERT. A lot of work - exciting projects for both the world bank on cities and climate change and on sustainable development intervention planning for two cities in India - but I'm really enjoying it. More recently, I took a short trip over winter break to Puerto Rico with my gf, spent new years east coast in very cold-windchilled nyc and dc with many old friends and family, and am now settling back in to the much nicer Colorado weather, upcoming ski season, and semester. Also looking forward to organizing a mohoden dance party event this month or next - so if \ you have good tracks to add to the list of our moho mix - let me know. We're also developing our jewish learning component - so if any of you want to share events you ran early on in your existence as a moho community - that'd be much appreciated.

Happy new year,
Josh
