Camp Be'chol Lashon

Registration is currently open for Camp Be'chol Lashon, a multicultural Jewish leadership camp at Walker Creek Ranch in West Marin, CA.

Research

As Jews become more integrated into American society, it should come as no surprise that growing numbers of Black, Asian, Latinx and mixed-race individuals are part of the Jewish community.

Education

Passport to Peoplehood is an educational resource that explores Jewish communities around the world through the traditions and cultural arts that defines each unique culture, as well as recognizing the shared values that connect all Jews.

Speakers Bureau

Our Speakers Bureau includes diverse community, academic and cultural arts leaders, like singer Sarah Aroeste, above. Book a speaker to address your community.
