Young adults in Portland have several July events to choose from at Moishe House on the east side and Moishe Pod on the west side. The young residents of Moishe House Portland and Moishe Pod-WestPDX create and host events every month for their peers in their 20s and early 30s. Young adults from all over greater Portland are welcome at all events.
Moishe House is a global nonprofit that builds peer-led Jewish communities for young adults around the world. Moishe House funds, trains and educates young adults to create pluralistic, inclusive and welcoming Jewish communities. Portland has had a Moishe House since 2008.
In July, Portland Moishe House plans four events: Moishe House Shabbat Dinner, July 8; Rock Climbing at The Circuit Climbing Gym (NE location), July 13; Dust & Ashes: Russian and Ukrainian Narratives as Jewish Text, hybrid event, July 19; and a Rummage Sale, July 28.

Moishe Pod-WestPDX has three events on its schedule for July: Game Night at the Pod, July 11; Havdalah Bonfire, July 23; and Animal Fun at the Oregon Humane Society, July 30.
The new Moishe Pod – a two-person Moishe House – launched in April to provide young adults opportunities to find Jewish connections and community on Portland’s west side.
“We’ve met some wonderful people and are having a great time,” says pod resident Shelly Zeiser, who plans pod events with her partner, Owen Broder.” Events usually have about 8-12 people but fluctuate a bit. My favorite event was our Shabbat potluck. We are hosting another Shabbat in August, barbecue themed!”
