Learn, Grow and Lead with NEXTGen
NEXTGen is constantly redefining what it means to be young and Jewish in the Michiana region, creating space for Jewish young adults (age 21-45) to build connections beyond religious affiliations. The NEXTGen group provides the opportunity for Jewish Young Adults in our community to Learn, Grow, and Lead together to build a better future for our community.
On November 10, NEXTGen was excited to host a networking event on the Federation campus. More than 20 community members participated in a communal bonfire over drinks and s’mores.
In the colder months, we host board game nights a few times a year. This gives everyone the opportunity to connect and network; the more people who show up the better! Our next board game night is combined with the opportunity for chesed (kindness). We will be volunteering March 2 to help decorate for the Purim Carnival, followed by drinks and board games.
To take advantage of the changing seasons we often host spring and summer hikes to give everyone the opportunity to get outdoors and explore nature. Our next hike is scheduled for April 23 at Potato Creek State Park.
Here are some upcoming events in the coming months.
January 21: Bowling
March 2: Purim Game Night and Volunteer Hour
April 23: NEXTGen Spring Hike
NextGen welcomes all young adults (age 21-45), regardless of religious practice, heritage, skin color, sexual orientation, gender, ability, or life stage. If you're interested in our programs, we would love to see you!
