Welcome (Back) to Jews Next Dor

Looking to connect with some Jews your age?

New to the Jewish scene in Portland?

Jews Next Dor (JND), Congregation Beth Israel’s group for 20/30-somethings, is for you!

Operating under Portland’s largest Reform synagogue, JND creates opportunities for the young adults of Portland’s Jewish community to come together in a relaxed and open environment. Offering both spiritual and social events, JND is excited to be back in action after our Covid-19 hiatus. 

If you would like to be added to our mailing list, click the button and let us know (we only send out one-two emails a month). If you haven’t already, join us on Facebook so, you can see upcoming events and get invited to any ad-hoc gatherings! You do not need to be a member of Congregation Beth Israel (or of any synagogue, for that matter) to participate.

Up Next with JND!
