San Francisco Bay Area

Welcome!

We support interfaith couples and families in all parts of the Bay Area. Whether you’re in the North Bay and Wine Country, East Bay, SF, Peninsula or South Bay, we’d love to meet you and hear your stories. Our office is in San Francisco on the Embarcadero, but we float around and would love to share a cup of coffee on our next stop to your area.

InterfaithFamily/Bay Area is excited to announce the launch of Live. Love. Learn.: Parenting with Jewish Values, a four-part drop-in series for emerging interfaith families interested in exploring ways to infuse Judaism into their routine of daily life. Stay tuned for more information on the launch of this program in the spring of 2018. This program is supported by the Jewish Community Federation and Endowment Fund.
