People used to congregate regularly in shuls. They became the big suburban synagogues. Their parking lots are largely empty. Now the coffee shops are booming. The yoga studios, too. Something new is emerging, the old models won’t work.

With a group of local visionaries, we see Lee Road at Meadowbrook in Cleveland Heights as the hub of a vibrant, international eco-village for idealistic, 20- or 30-something Jews. Spirituality, creativity and activism merge in our vision of a walkable community called Tiferet Village.
