The Berkeley Bayit Application 2024-2025
Please fill out this form to apply to live at the Berkeley Bayit, Berkeley's coolest (and only) Jewish co-living house!

After undergoing remodeling, we are currently accepting applications for the 2024-2025 academic year. The initial round of interviews will be held early in 2024. Once you apply, a member of the Bayit will reach out to you with more information about visiting the house and scheduling an interview date.

The Berkeley Bayit is an intentional, Jewish, pluralistic living space. An important component of Bayit residence is taking on a leadership role for the Berkeley Jewish community at-large. You'll host Shabbat dinner and Jewish social gatherings, holiday celebrations, Jewish learning, and more. 

"The Berkeley Bayit is intended to provide its residents with more than a Jewish living experience. The Bayit hosts a dynamic and challenging environment whose objective is to stimulate personal growth, commitment to the Jewish traditions and community, and to encourage an active role in the Berkeley Jewish Community."
