Chabad of Downtown & Young Jewish Professionals of Austin

Bringing Joyous Judaism

Welcome to Austin and welcome to the community


The young Jewish community in Austin is a vibrant and welcoming place, filled with beautiful people who connect with each other and their Jewish heritage.

We understand that it can be overwhelming to explore a new group of people, but please rest assured that you will be welcomed with open arms.

Rabbi Mendy and Mussy Levertov, along with volunteers and committee members, lead this group with a focus on bringing young adults together for community, learning, and growth.

The best way to connect with us is by reaching out for a coffee. We love meeting up and believe it's the most effective way to build a connection. There doesn't need to be a specific reason for meeting; the desire to connect is reason enough.

Meanwhile, please explore this page that describes the numerous events organized by YJP, follow our social media accounts, and sign up for our email list to stay updated.
