Jewish Community Center of the East Bay

Jewish Community Center of the East Bay

The JCC of the East Bay has provided a Jewish gateway and home to a large community since 1978. People of all ages, faiths and backgrounds are invited to join us as we build community, meet new friends, and learn and celebrate together. Our outstanding programming includes a year-round preschool, afterschool, summer and vacation camps, senior meals and activities, and cultural and recreational events.


The JCCEB promotes intellectual, experiential and spiritual exploration of Jewish culture and tradition; builds joyful, progressive and inclusive community; and inspires the active pursuit of Tikkun Olam (repair of the world).
