The 5th bedroom
The room has gotten some attention, but it was just getting ready for the end of summer months. Beginning August 1st, Jen Rosenthal, a Sacramento MH alum, spent the month in the room while she was doing some schooling at UCSF. After a solid 30 day stint, Jen moved out. Our most recent Israeli guests, Gigi and Noyat then picked up the 5th bedroom for just over a week, in between their excursions up to Yosemite and the Redwood Forest.
Without our 5th bedroom, would our new friends have wanted to stay in our place? Well, yeah, sure they could've slept on the couch. However, by having that extra room, we are really able to share our home with our guests, allow them to have a private and comfortable space when they are on their traveling adventures. How cool would it be for all of us to be able to travel internationally, contact your local Moishe House and see if you could spend a few nights in a cozy and nice house, get to know some young and cool Jews, and share your story with other people. I can't wait to do some international Moishe House traveling when I get a chance!!
