Welcome to our What's New page! Here we list events around the San Francisco Bay Area that are of interest to those who want to learn more about Judaism.
Looks like life online is our future. The good side is that we get to hear from people who are far-flung.
The synagogues continue to offer services online. If you would like go to services simply pick the synagogue you’d like to “visit” and get on their site for streaming services.

Online Friday Night Service that's only Half an Hour
If you aren't sure where to go why not try the very brief Friday night service that Rabbi Bridget Wynne of Jewish Gateways hosts every week. Take a look at the description here.
LET'S GO TO THE MUSEUM!
Levi Strauss: A History of American Style
The Contemporary Jewish Museum is reopening and we are FINALLY going to get to see the Levi Strauss exhibit! The exhibit description says, “In 1873, at the end of the California Gold Rush, Levi Strauss & Co., named for a Bavarian Jewish dry goods merchant in San Francisco, obtained a U.S. patent with tailor Jacob Davis on the process of putting metal rivets in men’s denim work pants to increase their durability. It was the birth of the blue jean.”
Jeans – or Levis – have become one of the most worn items of clothing in this country. I’m looking forward to learning more about their history and the Jewish immigrants who invented them.
We will be meeting at the museum at so we can view the exhibit together. You will need to purchase your own ticket IN ADVANCE as the museum is limiting attendance.
From the website I see that we CAN have lunch together after the exhibit at the Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen and eat OUTDOORS in the patio area.
So go here to get your ticket. Be sure to get it for the correct date and time if you want to be in our friendly company.
Sunday, June 27 at 11am.
