Motor City Takeover

The Moshie House is taking over the city of Detroit!

No, not literally but which Moishe House can say they had the likes of a Mayor, United States Senator, and international pop star over for Shabbat dinner within six months of their grand opening? That’s what we call Detroit Muscle…

The Detroit Moishe House is a strong group of residents who are not only trying to build a strong Jewish community within Metro Detroit but also trying to rebuild a brain-drained city. Our house is so much more then enriching Jewish life, it’s about breaking down stereotypes and rebuilding Jewish community within Detroit City limits.

A few of our residents are taking a proactive approach to rebuilding our city by founding both the Live For Detroit fund, a rent subsidy program for Next Generation leaders of Detroit to move to the city, and Detroit Harmony, a nonprofit which focuses on creating natural diversity in the city.

As residents, we understand the tremendous undertaking to rebuilding a major city like Detroit. However, with the generous giving by our donors and the outstanding efforts by people within the Detroit Jewish community, we look forward to the day where we can say that the residents of the Motor City Moishe House played an important role in the rebirth of a prosperous Jewish community within Detroit.

Thank you again to all of our donors and a special thank you to Adam Finkel who is the reason our house is in existence.

Make it a great year in 2012!
