Kids & Families

Come participate in the full spectrum of Jewish life in the Bay Area

Whether you’re seeking to develop your Jewish knowledge, build new friendships, or find a supportive community, we offer onramps to explore and forge new connections.  

From scholarships to camps to peer connectors, we aim to make meaningful Jewish experiences accessible and affordable.

Our Early Childhood and Family Engagement Initiative (ECFEI) focuses on engaging Bay Area Jewish families with young children in meaningful Jewish life and community. The initiative was launched in 2007 in response to the 2006 JESNA study that highlighted the importance of early childhood Jewish education as a gateway for family engagement.

PJ Library Bay Area connects you to Jewish culture, values, and tradition. Sign up for free books, holiday events, family meet-ups, opportunities for volunteering, and more ways to connect with the people in your community.

Bay Area Jewish Camp Collective is a consortium that educates Bay Area families about the range of Jewish overnight camps. Whether your child wants to surf the coast, plant an organic garden, develop athletic skills, or just have a good time, there’s a camp for you. By sharing our excitement about the value of summer camp and the options available, we hope to encourage families of diverse backgrounds to give their children this life-changing experience.
