Inspiring Jewish Life and Learning

Jewish Learning

One of the Federation’s central impact goals is to inspire Jewish life and learning, in the Bay Area and globally.

We seek to broaden Jewish engagement by helping Jews explore and connect with the rich diversity of Jewish life, through:

  • Providing scholarships for Jewish camp and school
  • Prioritizing Jewish Early Childhood Education
  • Connecting young adults and teens to Israel experiences, including Birthright Israel, Diller, Gift of Israel
  • Expanding inclusion for children with special needs and their families
  • Deepening young adult engagement in Jewish life
  • Supporting engagement through JCCs and Hillels
  • Supporting Jewish community relations and security
  • Fostering Synagogue-Federation partnership
  • Advancing programs that support our diverse Jewish community, including LGBTQ, Jews of Color, Mizrahi, Sephardi, and Russian-speaking Jews.
