Next Dor @ Rodeph Shalom: 20's & 30's
NEXT Dor connects Jewish adults in their 20s and 30s to each other and to Judaism. Our goal is to create Jewish community for ourselves and do Jewish stuff together without any expectation of membership. Events include Shabbat dinners, classes, cultural events and holiday gatherings.

The following principles guide our work:
• Self-defined Jews - we will not attempt to define who can be involved and who can’t; all are welcome whether people self-identify as Jews or are in the process of self-identifying as a Jew or are connected to Jews in some way.
• Low-Bar to Engagement – Our intention is to remove any obstacle to people becoming part of this vibrant community; we will aim to make events accessible, affordable, and walk-in friendly.
If you are interested in getting involved with Next Dor or joining the email list, please contact Rabbi Eli Freedman ([email protected]). We look forward to getting to know you.
