Mission Statement

Urban Moshav creates Jewish cohousing, a form of intentional community with a Jewish flavor.

Description

Urban Moshav is a non-profit development partner for Jewish cohousing.

  • Cohousing is a form of intentional neighborhood, with private homes and extensive common facilities, in which residents know their neighbors well and engage deeply in community life.
  • Jewish cohousing is a modern village where neighbors engage one another through Jewish ritual, study, and culture, creating a milieu in which Jewish literacy, tradition, and values can flourish.

Urban Moshav supports forming communities by assisting them in a variety of areas, including: Project visioning, group formation, governance and decision-making, site search and feasibility, political approvals, project management, marketing and membership, budgeting/cash flow/finance, working with developers/construction professionals, and construction management. Our first project is Berkeley Moshav, a 20-25 household community in Berkeley, CA.
