Gears (animated)Our friends are sometimes surprised to learn that Chabad of the Bay Area is not funded by outside sources, rather it is the grass-roots support from the community we serve and friends and admirers who really make our work possible.

As we near the end of 2014, please stay tuned for details about our special upcoming End of the Year Campaign.

Your partnership and support at this time is not only a vote of confidence, but vital to enabling our efforts to provide warm, welcoming and innovative programming to Jewish people throughout the Bay Area regardless of background or affiliation.
