NowGen is an initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Phoenix that engages Jewish young adults between the ages of 21-45 through meaningful programs and services that foster a deeper connection to Judaism and Jewish life in the Valley of the Sun.


The Federation’s NowGen initiative also funds several community partners through an annual grant process. These organizations, such as Moishe House, Honeymoon Israel and Jewish Genetic Diseases Center, partner with NowGen to provide key services to young adults.
