Aviv
(20s & 30s)

Community, Caring, & Belonging

The word Aviv means spring in Hebrew, and like the season, this period of our lives is a time for new beginnings and growth.

Renewal of the youth, energy, and passion that makes BJ a sacred center for Jews from all streams.

Blossoming of new friendships, community, social action projects, and religious identity.

Growth of our spiritual life through prayer, music, learning, and ritual.

We are a diverse community of Jewish young adults, professionals and students, singles and couples, committed to creating a Jewish life that is meaningful, relevant, and dynamic. Aviv is led by a committee of dedicated, creative BJ members.

Everyone in their 20s or 30s is welcome to join our activities! Membership at BJ is not a requirement, though it comes with some great perks and a reduced rate. Find out more information about our Special Young Adult Membership Rate now!
