The JCC is proud to be a part of the Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood, co-funded by the Koret Foundation, Taube Foundation for Jewish Life and Culture, and the Jewish Federation of SIlicon Valley.
Through this initiative, we present programs and celebrations that bring community together, travel and education programs that build connections to Israel and the heritage of the Diaspora communities, innovative classes and participatory experiences that elevate Jewish literacy and invigorate Jewish practice. The JCC believes that the ongoing vitality of the Jewish people lies in the richness of its communal life, the vibrancy and diversity of its cultural and spiritual expression, and the shared experiences that inspire a sense of connectedness to Jews everywhere and in every generation.
We'd like to hear from you. Contact Jenessa Schwartz, Director of the Center for Jewish Life and Learning, at CJLL@svjcc.org or 408.357.7411.
