NEXTGen Detroit

The hub of a young, vibrant Jewish Detroit.

Who is a NEXTGen Detroiter?

Great Question.

The NEXTGen Detroit community is made up of 21 to 45-year-olds in all stages of young adult. So whether you’re a recent grad, a parent, a CEO, single, married, here for good or just passing through, we have something for you in Jewish Detroit. And if we don’t have it, we’ll happily help you find it.

Here’s what we’ve got going on…

Let’s Get Social

Think of NEXTGen Detroit as that really outgoing friend who is always thinking of cool things to do and introducing you to awesome people. Check out our upcoming events here.

Jewish Experiences

Our culture is full of traditions and holidays, rich history, diversity and really good food — and we’re celebrating it with Shabbat dinners, holiday events, learning opportunities and more.

Keeping it Professional

Seasoned pro or just starting out? We’ve got career-building ops for everyone. From our top-tier networking series to our on-staff employment specialist, we’re ready to help you make your next big move.

Community Leadership

If you’re looking to make your mark on Jewish Detroit, we’ve got a number of ways for you to stretch your leadership wings. Join a committee, serve on our Board of Directors or get in on one of our leadership development programs.

Birthright Israel

We’ve got so much to tell you about our Detroit Community Birthright trips here.

NEXTGen Detroit Pride

We’re making a welcoming gateway into the Jewish community for LGBTQA young adults looking for connection and a supportive atmosphere to explore everything Jewish Detroit has to offer.

NEXTGen Detroit Volunteers

Meet like-minded people who also love lending a hand at a variety of volunteer opportunities we organize throughout the year.

Interfaith Couples

This group welcomes, embraces and educates interfaith couples and their families. Programs offered every 2 to 3 months don’t explicitly teach how to “be Jewish” but rather support and encourage families as they explore how to “do Jewish.” See our upcoming events here.
