In Our Words
Ofek Shalom Co-op is situated in a small, comfortable house on the corner of Bassett and Dayton. We are a dynamic community made up of 10 working and studying people from a range of backgrounds. We enjoy late-night discussions, board games, quality time with our house’s three cats, and parties/events hosted throughout the year! We are committed to providing a warm, welcoming environment for people with all world-views, backgrounds, and identities. All house meals are vegetarian with a vegan option, and the house features five porches with astonishing views of the surrounding area.
Ofek is historically and culturally a Jewish house, whose roots go back to Kibbutz Langdon in the 70’s. We have maintained this tradition by hosting events on Jewish holidays, such as our Purim party and Passover Seder. We also celebrate Shabbat every Friday with a joyous meal with homemade challah for anyone who would like to join us. One does not have to be Jewish to membership here; all are welcome.
