Our Mission


Moving to Our Center facilitates intentional education, dialogue, and experiences for the Jewish community and beyond. MTOC focuses on complex and nuanced topics such as Israel and its relationship with the U.S., Democracy and Freedom, and related timely and relevant issues. Our goal is to demystify the notion of the “other” and bring each of us closer to our center of shared humanity.

WHO WE ARE: Moving to Our Center is a nonprofit organization founded by engaged members of the Jewish Community and friends. Our program board is expanding and includes a committed group of leaders in our community. Founding Members/Executive Board: Robyn Loup (Chair) and Elyn Shindler Moldow, with founding treasurer Hal Simmons.

OUR PROGRAMMING since our inception in 2022 has included panel discussions and youth outreach. In 2023 we are scheduled for a series of meaningful, bridge-building programs and community partnerships.
