Founded by Rabbi Mark N. Wildes in 1998, MJE is a warm and open community where millennial men and women in their 20s and 30s can explore Jewish life and meet new people. MJE runs a wide range of inclusive, engaging and innovative programs for thousands of young Jewish professionals, including Shabbat Dinners, Holiday Events and Parties, Ski Trip, Classes, Beginner Services, Trips to Israel, Marching in the Israel Day Parade and much more. MJE was founded in memory of Ruth B. Wildes z”l.
MJE and MJE Educators follow Modern orthodox Jewish religious practices and standards. All food and drinks at MJE events are certified Kosher by recognized national and/or regional kosher supervision agencies. However, most MJE community members do not consider themselves Modern Orthodox. We welcome Jews of all religious backgrounds and observance levels. Our doors are open for you to learn and explore your Judaism.
