Closing out another wonderful year!

As this fiscal year comes to a close, we look back at a year of activities and outreach that touched many of our Jewish sisters and brothers in the Bay Area, with insightful classes, meaningful Jewish celebrations, Shabbat and holiday dinners, welcoming services and above all, one-on-one caring interactions that enriched and uplifted the lives of one individual and family at a time.

As an independent startup non-profit, Chabad of the Bay Area is made possible by your partnership and generosity. Every little bit counts and makes a difference.

Please consider making Chabad of the Bay Area an important part of your end of year, tax-deductible giving.

This year, we are excited to be launching a special one-day gift matching campaign (see next post). If you wish to donate now, please see the info below:
