Berkeley Moshav: Interest Survey
Berkeley Moshav is a 20-25 household "Jewish cohousing" community envisioned for Berkeley, CA. This short survey is for collecting information from potential participants. Please give us your feedback! Here is a brief description of Jewish cohousing:

COHOUSING is a form of intentional neighborhood, with extensive common facilities (dining hall, outdoor space, shared guest rooms/studio/workshop, etc) and a balance between community and privacy, in which people know their neighbors well and participate actively in community life.

JEWISH cohousing is a modern village where neighbors engage together in Jewish ritual, study, and culture, creating a milieu in which daily life is infused with Jewish life and where Jewish literacy, identity, and values can flourish. Differences in each household's Jewish observance would be respected and valued. (Each community would decide for itself the Jewish practice at community events.)

1. How interested would you be to live in Jewish cohousing in each of the following locations?

2. How interested are you in being one of the "core" households that drive the creation of Berkeley Moshav?
Core households are those most committed to the project and most able to help it succeed. They meet roughly every other week to make plans, find a location, work with professionals (architects, contractors, lawyers, etc.), and more. They commit at least $1,000 initially and more later, according to their means, as project feasibility is demonstrated. (They get a substantial return on their initial investment if the project succeeds.) Additional households will join the core as the project evolves.

3. How interested are you in being a "community" household that stays connected to the Berkeley Moshav project while considering joining the core group at a later stage?
Community households meet monthly, along with core households, to create community (picnics, Shabbat dinners, etc) and give feedback on the evolving project. Community households join the core group as they decide to commit to the project and as the core group seeks to expand.
