Shanah Tovah!

This will be our last post before the new year, so we wanted to outline some of the great things that have been happening and will happen in the coming year.

I'll be heading to Cincinnati to spend Rosh Hashanah with my family in an hour or so, and wanted to take the time to recap all of the amazing things that happened over the past year.

A little over a year ago, Moishe House opened it's singular door in a renovated synagogue in South City. Two moves later, Moishe House is attracting larger-than-ever crowds and it diversifying its events.

As our community has grown, we've been able to participate in larger and larger numbers of opportunities in St. Louis, including Habitat for Humanity builds, sessions with local and national politicians, leaders, and intellectuals.

We've been around the country several times and have had the opportunity to witness the energy that keeps bubbling up whenever we are able to connect with other Jewish young adults.

And our actions are getting noticed. The St. Lou Jew has surpassed 30,000 hits, with a large number of our activity coming from Facebook, Twitter, and Jewishinstlouis.

As we look towards the new year, we are excited for all of the possibilities Next Dor will bring. We've already connected with some great people, and look forward to meeting even more.

I personally see so many great things happening and look forward to 5770.

Shanah Tovah to all of you and may this next year be a sweet year filled with happiness, health, momentum!
