In Our Words: 

Ofek Shalom Co-op is a co-op 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, jam sessions around the (newly-tuned!) piano, and hosting social events such as our monthly book-club, art nights, and parties 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 striving to maintain a kosher kitchen and celebrating Shabbat every Friday with a joyous meal with homemade challah for anyone who would like to join us. However, one does not have to be Jewish to membership here; all are welcome.
