This Valentine's Day,

Show me yours 

Tomorrow, Thursday, February 14th, 6pm



Join RJeneration on Valentine's Day for after-work drinks, hors d' oeuvres, and a little something special. Discover intrigue in the cards...and find your Queen or King in the deck!


Meet in the warmth of Gramercy Park Bar, and surround yourself with new faces, new adventures, new games...and no pressure.


That sounds pretty chill, right? Well...there is a small catch.  


Everyone must bring an unattached pal of the opposite sex. That's right: a platonic (dare we use the word?) "date"...

About RJeneration
Born in the Soviet Union -- made in America

We came to America as kids and teens, brought by our parents. Some were born enroute, and some were born here. We are a generation of Americans with a second culture and language, a Russian heritage, Jewish roots, and a defining immigrant experience. We've juggled our "hybrid" Russian-Jewish-American identity throughout our lives.

Many of us went to the top high schools and colleges in the country. English is our primary language, but we still speak Russian. Runglish is also our style. We're Jewish, despite yeshiva traumas. We're in our 20's and 30's, busy building successful careers in every imaginable field. Some of us are already household names - Sergey Brin, Gary Shteyngart, David Bezmozgis, Lenny Krayzelberg, Mila Kunis, Regina Spektor. Many others are sure to follow and make their mark.

The RJeneration community brings us together to network, make connections, explore the richness of our unique Russian-Jewish-American identity, showcase and celebrate RJeneration's rising stars, and engage in Russian and Jewish life all around us.
