NextDor Seeking New Members

By Derek Holodak
NextDor Coordinator

Are you between the ages of 22 and 45? Are you interested in volunteering, learning more about your Jewish heritage, networking socially and professionally, or all of the above? Then NextDor is for you!

NextDor is the next generation of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven. We are a diverse community of young Jews from all backgrounds and walks of life who enjoy “doing Jewish” together (and other stuff too).

So whether you are Orthodox, Reform or somewhere in between or neither; just out of college, married with kids, single or a single parent; looking for new friends to celebrate Shabbat with or that special someone to bring home for Passover who will make Bubbe proud, NextDor is here to help you live the Jewish life you want and connect you with the people you’ll want to share it with.

Join us on Thursday, September 13, at 5:30 p.m. as we kick off our new season (and the new year!) with a mix of good friends and tasty drinks in the back garden of 116 Crown in New Haven.

Have we piqued your interest yet? Well then head on over to Jewishnewhaven. org/NextDor to sign up for our mailing list and find out about the other programs in our fall lineup, like our November 29 author talk with Mike Reiss, producer and writer for The Simpsons.

And if you really want to get the most out of NextDor, join our Facebook group, too! That’s where we post about more informal, spontaneous hangouts (like pub trivia nights, concerts, pick-up soccer/ultimate frisbee in the park, etc.), share news and events from the New Haven Jewish community at large, and chat about the issues that matter most to us.
