Shalom uvrucha!Hello and welcome! My name is Rabbi Mark Wildes. I am the Founder/Director of Manhattan Jewish Experience, a cutting edge program for young Jewish professionals in their 20’s and 30’s, with less of a  background in Judaism but who are interested in connecting more to each other, to the community, and to Judaism itself. MJE is a place where young men and women can explore Jewish life and meet new people. We run a wide range of inclusive, engaging and innovative programs for thousands of young Jewish professionals, including parties, an annual ski trip, classes, beginner prayer services, marching in the Israel day parade, Friday night dinners and much much more. MJE was founded in memory of my late Ruth B. Wildes z”l who was known for her warmth, hospitality and her expanding Shabbat table at which everyone was made to feel like a member of our family.  

This blog seeks to cover topics that are relevant to young Jewish professionals and every week or so I will be publishing my thoughts on topics such as health and happiness, food, philanthropy, professional advancement, sexuality, relationships, style, and of course upcoming events at MJE. My focus will be to relate as to how these topics are relevant not only to the teachings of Judaism but how we can use what the Torah teaches to better our everyday lives when it comes to these subjects and more. I welcome not only your feedback but your suggestions on these issues. In the coming days, please tell me what you’d like to see more of, less of, anything that is of interest to you, or just leave a comment about how you think I’m doing. Everything will be considered and appreciated.  Thanks so much and I look forward to undertaking this journey with you all.
