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

May 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT


Let’s Bayit: Homebuying and Building a Jew-ish Home

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.
  • 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’ Director of Community Engagement Molly Kazin Marshall and realtor Mon Kramer of Move with Pride for a discussion aimed at helping couples navigate these and other questions.
(And, if you were wondering, bayit means “house” in Hebrew!)


Molly Kazin MarshallMeet Molly Kazin Marshall

As Director of Community Engagement and Special Projects, it’s Molly’s passion to connect interfaith couples in her community to resources and tools unlocking aspects of Jewish culture and traditions. With a passion for food and drink, Molly enjoys visiting the numerous breweries in the Boston area, plus baking and cooking at home. Kugel is one of her favorite foods, and is one of the few ways she will tolerate raisins. She especially loves hearing her friends who have never had kugel try to pronounce the word.
