Jewish Families of Color Weekend

Join us to celebrate and center our multiethnic Jewish community and cultural richness!

An intentional affinity space for Jewish families of color (JOC+*) to build community and rejuvenate in the stunning beauty of the Sierra Mountains.

For the second year, we are thrilled to offer an affinity space just for families with at least one person of color in their household and/or who identify as multiracial. This weekend will celebrate multiethnic Jewish community and culture by centering JOC+ and offering dynamic workshops, discussions and other programming led by JOC+* guest educators on topics of interest and relevance to you. 

Plus, all the classic Tawonga Family Camp offerings, like campfires with s’mores, a community shabbat celebration, talent show and more. 

We understand that the language of “person of color” may not capture the nuance of everyone’s identities. Our goal is to create a big tent while maintaining this weekend as a special affinity space.

*JOC+ includes folks who have been marginalized by whiteness racially or culturally and who root themselves in diverse identities including Black, Indigenous, Latino, Asian, Sephardi, Mizrachi, Middle Eastern and more.
