Baruch Hashem I live at Moishe House Great Neck

Recently, a few regulars at our events have unfortunately been going through a tough time in their lives, and they all felt comfortable to come to us for support; the fact that they came to us really validates what we have been able to do at Moishe House Great Neck. Through the house, we have been able to develop deep friendships and bonds with fellow Young Professional Jews in our community; everyone knows that they are always welcome at our house and feel comfortable enough to just walk in hang out. It's truly amazing.

I am so blessed to be a resident at Moishe House Great Neck. Being a resident has given me the opportunity to help make a difference in other peoples lives, and I'm very thankful for that. I am also blessed to live with unbelievable roommates; they constantly inspire me, and I know that I have become a much stronger Jew because of them.

Rabbi Vaknin from our Moishe House Monthly always teaches that our generation is unique compared to the generations before us. Unfortunately, our generation is not as knowledgeable in Judaism compared to our previous generations; however, our generation excels in the Mitzva of "Gemilut Chasadim;" We are a generation that truly cares about others; whether it's giving to charity, hosting people at our house, or performing other great acts of kindness to our fellow Jews. Gemilut Chasadim is essential for uniting the Jewish people, and there has never been a more essential time for us to be united. Through Moishe House, we have all been given the amazing opportunity to unite.

Shabbat Shalom,
