Base Hillel: A pluralistic project for millennials takes a page from the Chabad playbook

January 19, 2018


YCT musmakhim Jon Leener and Avram Mlotek impact hundreds of millennials in their respective Base Hillels in the NYC neighborhoods of Chelsea and Williamsburg. Their work is well described in this JTA article:

“Base occupies a middle ground between the home-and synagogue-based outreach of Chabad, the outward-looking Hasidic movement, and Moishe House, a network of apartments where young Jewish singles host social and holiday events in exchange for rent subsidies. While Chabad offers its services to all comers, its guiding philosophy is haredi Orthodox. Base is intentionally more pluralist.”
