Agency Information:

Founded in 1978 as the Berkeley-Richmond JCC, we continue to evolve to meet the community's needs. Serving over 9,000 people each year, the JCC plays an important role as a communal gathering place, celebrating people of all ages, backgrounds, and types of observance.

Over the years, the JCC has absorbed and strengthened vital programs that originated at other local JCCs, including Oakland afterschool, Camp Tzofim, the JCC Maccabi Games(r), and ArtsFest. In 2006, we became the JCC East Bay to reflect our broad geographic reach in Alameda and Contra Costa counties. The Berkeley branch, which is a historic landmark building, is home to an award-winning preschool, a vibrant afterschool program, and spaces for the entire community to come together. The JCC also offers large afterschool programs onsite at two Oakland public schools.

The JCC East Bay creates healthy communities inspired by Jewish values, culture, and tradition.
