Adding Meaning to Life

VBS NextGen

Looking for what’s next in young Jewish LA?  

VBSnextGen is a home for young Jewish couples at Valley Beth Shalom: providing a platform to lead, make a difference, form lasting friendships, cultivate Jewish life and help build the future VBS family.

We believe that a meaningful life is best lived in community. Jewish learning and practice can transform – it can change lives, give purpose, and invest people in the world. VBSnextGen is our path for connection, transformation, and social action.

To accomplish this, VBSnextGen offers a range of monthly events, including:

  • Monthly Events – Pool Parties, Sporting Events, Hikes, Bar Nights
  • Intimate Shabbat Dinners – 3-4 Couples at Private Homes
  • Libation and Learning – Neighborhood Learning groups with VBS Rabbis
  • Community Outreach – Do some Mitzvahs, meet some Menches!
  • PLUS – Discounted VBS Membership!

From Shabbat dinners to Havdalah Bar Nights, VBSnextGen is a place to build a connected, spiritually alive Jewish community in the San Fernando Valley.  A strong connection to community is a way to ensure lifelong connections with friends and Judaism.  That’s why we’re building avenues for connection, transformation, and social action.

We offer three main avenues to get to know the group - email us at [email protected] to get your schmooze on with a nextGen coffee date, sign up for a private Shabbat dinner with 3 other couples or join us for one of our larger monthly events connecting couples through Shabbat services, social justice activities, game nights, wine tastings, and more. We hope you can join us soon!
