Established in 2007,the Generation Next has grown to include The Hadracha College program, Turkish Union of Jewish Students, Turkish Jewish Heritage group, a network of Young Jewish adults and a suite of programs and initiatives designed to advance our work. We pursue our mission by working collaboratively with different organizations of the Turkish Jewish Community to support high quality education, identity development, leadership training and a few other programs to help young Jewish adults cultivate their growth as individuals and leaders.
Our work is focused in four primary areas in which we hope to make a deep impact :
- Jewish identity and community (a profound devotion to Judaism, the Jewish people and the Jewish state)
- Personal training & leadership programs
- Connection to Israel & other diaspora communities to change and share ideas
- Holocaust Education & Knowledge about Anti-Semitism in Turkey
- The mission of Tikkun Olam
We believe that an understanding of and an appreciation for differences lead to healthy and inclusive community. We believe that by respecting all people and hearing all voices and by celebrating our shared humanity, we make better decisions for ourselves and for the community we serve.
