What is NextDor

NextDor: The Next Generation of Leadership is the Young Adult Division of Jewish Federation of Northeastern New York.

The name, NextDor, reflects our desire to create a lasting commitment, among Jews 22-40, to ensure the future of our Jewish community.

We believe that by creating a culture of engagement, we cultivate an active and vibrant Jewish community locally, and allow for the empowerment of tomorrow’s Jewish leaders everywhere.

NextDor events and activities include community-wide programming, social events, Israel advocacy and education, and lectures.
