Connecting Jewish adults in their 20s and 30s

next-dorNext Dor DC 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. Events include Shabbat dinners and lunches, community volunteering, classes, cultural events, and holiday gatherings. 

  • Next Dor Newsletter
  • Rabbi Lederman's article, "I'm a Next Dor Rabbi".
  • Washington Jewish Week article, "Singles should be included in synagogue life".  Dec. 21, 2011
  • June-July-August 2011 Vine article.

    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.
    • Team-driven vision – Although much of the initial vision is being provided by Rabbi Lederman, our goal is to aim for a vision of this community that includes the voices of all who are stake-holders in this work.
    • Low-Bar to Engagement – Our intention is to remove any obstacles to people becoming a part of this vibrant community; we will aim to make events metro-accessible, affordable, and walk-in friendly. 
    • Experiment and take risks - we really only learn what ‘works’ when we explore what hasn’t been done, even it means making mistakes and learning along the way; this means any group of committed individuals who want to plan an event or try something new should begin making a plan!

    If you are interested in getting involved with Next Dor DC or joining the email list, please contact Gayle Kent. We look forward to getting to know you.
