Young Professionals Division
We provide a diverse range of programming to fit the needs of young professionals based in New York City. This includes social, cultural, educational, networking and dating events, as well as classes and workshops related to Israel advocacy, relationships, healthy living, and Jewish thought, as well as social advocacy that encourages volunteer opportunities.
The Brownstone’s Israeli Division aims to build bridges for the tens of thousands of Israelis in New York City, and to provide them with a place to call home: a place to celebrate holidays, communicate, network and engage in learning seminars on topics taught by international Israeli presenters.
Our Russian Division focuses on young adults of Russian origin. It strives to empower emerging leaders by providing them with the resources to create meaningful events for their community, to take ownership of their Jewish legacy, and responsibility for Jewish continuity.
We accommodate groups from across the world to stay in our space and enjoy a New York City experience from a Jewish perspective. From the must-see tourist attractions to classes on spirituality and personal growth, participants establish meaningful relationships through fun activities such as ice skating, catching a Knicks game or seeing a Broadway show. Our home becomes your home as you explore your heritage and develop your leadership potential.
