Here I Am Logo

“Here I Am” is a new initiative demonstrating the vibrancy, diversity, and values of the Bay Area Jewish community. Through grassroots storytelling videos, we seek to bring to light our personal experiences with antisemitism, and educate our neighbors how to be Jewish allies in this fraught moment. Add your voice to a growing chorus of Bay Area residents by signing up to get information and updates!
