At 5:45 p.m., at the McCormick and Schmick’s restaurant, in the Biltmore Hotel, a group of more than 50 Jewish Nextgeners, ages 22-45, gathered to network, socialize and relax.

The attendees included men and women in their 20s, 30s and 40s, single and married, reformed, conservative and orthodox alike, brought together by the common thread of Jewry. Together, they noshed, had a drink, chatted and even spent a few minutes talking with Mike Greenberg. Also mixed in were the founding members of the Collaborative Jewish NextGen board in Rhode Island. This newly-formed board includes Jews from all walks of Rhode Island Jewish life in their 20s and 30s. This group hopes to reach those unaffiliated in the Greater Rhode Island community through engagement and programming that is tailored for them, by them.
