The PJCC is proud to be supported by

The Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood.

koret taube philanthropies

The PJCC is proud to be a part of the Initiative on Jewish Peoplehood, co-funded by the Koret Foundation and Taube Foundation for Jewish Life and Culture. 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 PJCC 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.

Funded primarily by the Koret Foundation and the Taube Foundation for Jewish Life & Culture. Funded in part by Peninsula Jewish Community Center, Peninsula Temple Beth El, Peninsula Temple Sholom, Peninsula Sinai Congregation, Congregation Beth Jacob, Ronald C. Wornick Jewish Day School, and the Jewish Community Federation of San Francisco, the Peninsula, Marin and Sonoma Counties.
