Last Sunday, at a house in the heart of Scottsdale, Rabbi Pinchas Allouche hung a mezuzah on the entrance of Arizona’s first Moishe House. This June 2 ceremony marked the Valley’s entrance into an international network of peer-based Jewish communities for young adults ages 21-30. 

Moishe House, founded in 2006, started with four friends hosting Shabbat dinners for their peers out of their home in Oakland, Calif., and has grown into an international nonprofit with 55 houses worldwide.
