shabbatinnewhouseShabbat – A Home Away From Home Experience

Whether you’re looking to recreate the soft glow of Shabbat around your family’s dining room table or if you’d like to experience Shabbat’s beauty for the first time, Shabbat meals with MEOR will always leave you happy and never leave you hungry. Ridiculously delicious home cooking, great company, and a magical Shabbat vibe, right here in the MEOR Townhouse in Foggy Bottom.

RSVP to: Shabbat/Holiday Meal Reservations 


If you’ve ever wondered “Why” about any part of your Jewish identity, MEOR is the place you’ll be able to find personal, meaningful, and satisfying answers. We always say “We’re question junkies!” All of our educational programs, from the distinguished semester-long Maimonides Leaders Fellowship, to the personal Book A Rabbi, to the adventurous MEOR Israel are focused on providing an experience that is not only socially and culturally engaging, but also intellectually profound.



From the first moment you come to MEOR you’ll know you’re with friends. Our staff and students do their utmost to make sure you know you’re in a warm, safe, and cheery kind of place. Come down and check us out for some homemade food at our next Shabbat or sign up for Birthright Israel with MEOR. When you’re with us, you’re home!


When it comes down to it, what makes us different is the belief that we only become our best selves through a blend of head and heart. You’re here in school to learn, but most of us learn best when we are able to roll up our sleeves and be a part of the action. Whether it’s in going back to cultural roots on MEOR Poland, spending a summer internship in Israel on MEOR jInternships, or bonding with nature at the Sinai Retreats, you’ll be most likely to have an impressive Jewish experience like none you’ve ever had before. We look forward to sharing that with you!
