About this Community

The Jewish Federation and The Jewish Community Foundation of the East Bay coordinate Sprout, an initiative for families interested in learning and engaging with Jewish life. In addition to partnering with PJ Library and PJ Our Way, Sprout offers personalized personalized referrals to Jewish life that work for you, need-based financial aid for camp and Israel travel, and grants for a family's first step into Jewish life. Reach out at concierge@jfed.org to get help connecting with other families or finding programing at one of the dozens of Jewish synagogues, JCCs, preschools, Day Schools, or other community organizations in the East Bay–providing everything from Tot Shabbats to Jewish Yoga.
