NextGen (401)jTell me more about (401)j?

It’s your friends. It’s your community. It’s your programs. (401)j is a group of dynamic Jews, ages early 20s to mid-40s, who are dedicated to building a thriving Jewish collaboration in the “401.” Through a variety of programs including social, cultural, educational, and advocacy, young Jews like you are continuing the tradition of community. Whether you’re professionals, grad students, just starting your adult lives, or are married and have children, stop wandering… (401)j is your destination.

OK, but what makes it different than other NextGen groups?

This innovative cross-faction initiative will lead Rhode Island’s next generation into a stronger Jewish future. By joining forces and combining efforts, we will focus differently, act effectively, and engage broadly to bridge the gap between our rich historical roots and our burgeoning communal future.

What will (401)j offer me?

And, what is the (401)j blog?

(401)j’s blog is an online space for Jewish conversation among Greater Rhode Island’s 20′s, 30′s and early 40 somethings—a place where Jews our own age can say what is on their minds, share their life experiences and engage with one another. The blog includes stories, upcoming events, news, and everything in between.

Opportunities for young professionals seeking a Jewish identity

Clusters are peer-led groups of Jewish young adults who create community through the pursuit of a common interest. Clusters are overseen by (401)j, but are organized, coordinated and led by a community member. Current Cluster groups:
