Moishe House Blog: Dec. 2010
Hey, this is Noah writing the first blog for the San Diego Moishe House. Our 3rd full month as MHSD was BUSY! Hanukkah coincided with Finals Week for Jonathan (Yoni fat tony) and me. With 3 house events that week, plus the rest of the Hanukkah festivities meant that by the end of the week, we were exhausted. With Hanukkah out of the way, we were lucky to have Zvi come visit for the weekend of the 17th. While the usual San Diego sun failed to show (it rained the whole weekend), it was great having him in our house for Shabbat and getting to know him better.
As a new house, every event we do (besides Shabbat dinners) is a new experience and we are constantly figuring out better ways to reach the community or tailor events to people who are interested. This being said, we have been really fortunate to develop great connections and collaborations with Hillel’s graduate student group at UCSD, San Diego Birthright NEXT as well as the San Diego Young Adult Coalition. Our partnership’s with these groups has made our entry into the community really successful and the support has been amazing. We at MHSD are looking forward to a great 2011, and to many more delicious meals and good friends. Shana Tova and Tzom Kal.
