Moishe House San Diego – Jonathan’s Blog

Shabbat Shalom Moishekateers!

While there may be 33 states that are incapacitated by all this snow and cold weather, we in San Diego (and southern California) cannot complain! Our San Diego community has been growing at an amazing rate! We recently hosted a Shabbat dinner for over 60 people and a spectacular Tu B’Shvat Seder for over 60 people as well. I cannot express how magical it is to witness such a wonderful event, to see so many young Jews interacting, laughing, and getting to know each other and their community.

I am so excited for the future of this community; when we sit down to plan our events it is hard to decide which ones to do. I notice that there are so many wonderful opportunities for us [the community] to take advantage of, whether it be the San Diego Jewish Film Festival, local rabbis, or local volunteer opportunities. I think that when faced with planning events for the Moishe House, we must consider which events will impact the most people in a positive way. Meaning what can we do that not only strengthens our community by getting more people involved for good causes but also to physically and socially effect the community for the better!

Hope you all have a wonderful and peaceful Shabbat!
