Jews’ Next Dor (“Dor” means “generation” in Hebrew), Congregation Beth David’s Young Adult Group (CBDYAG), is an active community of Jewish 20 and 30 somethings centered in the South Bay, Ca . We enjoy multiple events a month including celebrating holidays, social action, educational and of course social events around the Bay Area.
You don’t have to be a member of Congregation Beth David to be part of our group or attend our events. Our community is comprised of singles and couples and is fully volunteer run. We’re partially subsidized by and associated with Congregation Beth David in Saratoga, Ca.
Don’t miss out on all the fun being had! We look forward to meeting you at a future event.
