New York – B’nai B’rith Young Leadership Network

The program year in NY kicked off in October 2014 with a joint Shabbat Dinner with Manhattan Jewish Experience-East. The evening provided a traditional Shabbat Dinner with over 85 young Jewish professionals coming together to observe Shabbat and meet new people. 

Following that event, on Thursday, Jan. 22, 2015, the YLN-NYC met up at the German Consulate for “Conversations Around the World”. About 18-20 young Jewish leaders came together to hear the Consul General of Germany, Brita Wagener, speak about the current German-Jewish community and the impact of the various anti-Semitic situations in many countries on their community. After she spoke, there was a brief question and answer session, followed by wine and light refreshments. It was a great event and the YLN-NYC plan to have more events at the many consulates and diplomatic missions on the calendar for the spring and summer schedule.

A March event will be a social program in conjunction with the Congregation Agudath Israel- Young Professionals, who have an active group in both NYC and NJ.

Upcoming events will include a fundraising event to benefit the National Mitzvah project, which will be chosen soon by the National Committee of Young Leadership.
