Al­ter­na­tive cen­tre gets new Willes­den home

The Jewish Chronicle - - Community Life - BY SI­MON ROCKER

MOISHE HOUSE, the Lon­don al­ter­na­tive com­mu­nity cen­tre run by a group of young peo­ple in their home, has moved to an­other lo­ca­tion in Willes­den.

The new house, a few roads away from the pre­vi­ous premises, is closer to Bron­des­bury Syn­a­gogue, said Joel Stan­ley, one of the five house­mates.

In the year it has been in op­er­a­tion, “we’ve had a 1,000 peo­ple pass through our door”.

The house is partly sub­sidised by a Cal­i­for­nian trust and is part of a net­work of Moishe Houses around the world. Its ac­tiv­i­ties range from so­cial evenings for asy­lum-seek­ers to a weekly beit midrash study­ing Jewish texts.
