Moed was founded by a group of native Israelis and new immigrants to continue the dream of Modern Zionism. Determined to challenge the popular Israeli expression of 'ze ma sh-yesh', that's just the way it is, Moed was established to create a platform for values of a shared community that enjoys its diversity- secular and religious, women and men, children and adults, natives and immigrants. Moed was born with a foundation of mutual respect as we connect, explore, and express a shared birthright.
Through creating times to engage Torah together, formally and informally, we learn to listen to one another, appreciate the Torah through new perspectives and underscore the belief that Torah is our shared inheritance.
We initiate and support social action programs and projects to breathe life into the values that we share and find opportunity to work together to built a society committed to our deepest ideals.
The Bible introduced the name Moed to describe the first structure to house the Jewish people and again in reference to introduce the concept of dedicated time. This dual connotation is at the heart of Moed’s vision. Embracing the design that modern Israel has created, bringing together an in-gathering of exiles with rich culture and experiences living together and building a shared life and destiny during this unique moment in history.
Through mutual respect, access to engaging Torah without preconditions, honest grappling, creative approach, and robust aspiration - together we are forging a new model of shared dynamic Jewish life.
