Next Dor was founded in 2009 as a community space to re-imagine the traditional Jewish community for the future generations. The name “Next Dor” stems from the Hebrew term Dor for generation. Our organization looks to foster the next generation of Jewish leadership both here in St. Louis and throughout the diaspora. We work to pursue our vision of an inclusive Jewish community for young adults and to become a platform for leadership development.


  • Inclusivity: We create a pluralistic Jewish community that welcomes everyone.
  • Social Justice (Tikkun Olam and Tzedek): We promote and provide opportunities to make St. Louis a more just and equitable community.
  • Community: We facilitate meaningful connections in a warm, inviting space.
  • Leadership: We build leadership skills through board roles, fellowships, and other

Our Team
Next Dor’s ability to tap into the various resources in the greater St. Louis community is one of the organization’s greatest strengths.  Our Fellows, selected from a large pool of qualified applicants, plan and implement Next Dor programming. The Board of Directors is made up of young, Jewish professionals, supported by members of the broader Jewish community with experience in non-profit governance and management.
