Let’s Bayit: Homebuying and Building a Jew-ish Home (Atlanta) – Online

November 4 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT


Buying your first home is a big deal. It’s a seemingly overwhelming process, and just figuring out how to get started can feel like a herculean task.

If you’re beginning to ask yourself any (or all!) of the questions below, we’ve got the perfect program for you.


  • What does it mean to build a Jewish (including Jew-ish, Jew adjacent, interfaith and multi-faith) home?
  • Where do I start?
  • How much money do I need to save?
  • When is the best time to buy?
  • What if my partner and I aren’t looking for exactly the same thing?
  • What do I do with all the well meaning advice that I seem to get from every corner of my life?
  • How do I identify the right partners along the way?
  • What does it mean to build a Jewish (including Jew-ish, Jew adjacent, interfaith and multi-faith) home?

Join 18Doors for a discussion aimed at helping couples in the Atlanta area navigate these and other questions.

  • Rabbi Malka Packer-Monroe, Director of 18Doors Atlanta
  • Jon Effron, Realtor, Compass

(And, if you were wondering, bayit means “house” in Hebrew!)

Attendees will be entered into a raffle for a $100 Home Depot gift card!



This event is cosponsored by Honeymoon Israel.
