The time is given independently of residents’ allotted vacation and sick days each year.


Efficiency, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments can be rented at moderate rates in a modern apartment building adjacent to the Moses Campus. Another apartment house in the Riverdale section of the Bronx, 15 minutes from the Moses Campus, is also available for house staff.
