Jews’ Next Dor – President’s Message – February 2, 2011

Posted by sjwisch on February 2, 2011

Shalom, Chaverim! January has passed like the blink of an eye. I want to thank everyone who has volunteered to organize an event, has served as a host for an event, and everyone who has attended events in the past month.

Jews’ Next Dor is your organization – what do you want it to look like?  Where do you want us to go in the coming months? Years?  We are growing, and more people are joining us – which is absolutely fantastic! I am very excited to see new people joining us. I hope to see many more people join the Jews’ Next Dor Community.  We are a very lively group and are organizing great events.

We just had an amazing talent show with many JND members singing, performing, telling stories, and modeling in a fashion show. This event very successful – we raised more than  $500 to put towards our programming.  Thank you to everyone who came out for the Talent Show.  I have a feeling we will be hosting more Talent Shows in the future.

We have a great line up of events over the next few weeks.  Please join us this Friday, February 4 for our First Friday Shabbat Potluck!/event.php?eid=166278733417872&index=1 which is being hosted at a private home in San Jose. Please review the Facebook invite for Potluck assignments.

On Saturday, February 5, several Jews’ Next Dor members will be attending Shabbat services at Congregation Beth David to show our support for the incoming board members. And one of our own JND members, Shelley Timmins will be installed as the board’s Recording Secretary. Go Shelley!

And keeping with tradition, please join us for our Second Wednesday Meet & Greet dinner at Willow Street Pizza -1554 Saratoga Avenue, San Jose Vote for your favorite vegetarian toppings on the Facebook invite.  Please RSVP to confirm your attendance so we can ensure enough food for all.

Looking forward — on Saturday, March 19 is the Annual Young Adult Purim Ball!/event.php?eid=157031524346718 hosted at the OFJCC in Palo Alto. We will have a costume contest, prizes, music, open bar, dancing and more. If you are interested in volunteering for Purim, please  email

Also, on Saturday, March 26, we are taking over Congregation Beth David to lead the Shabbat Morning service with many more activities following services as well. We would love to have you join us in leading prayers (English or Hebrew), helping with other volunteer activities we will need that day, and to attend services. To volunteer or if you need more information, please email

As you can see, there are a lot of things happening and we would love to have you join us for events that interest you. If there are events you are interested in planning, we would love to have your ideas and your energy.

Have a great week!
