Serving Congregations in San Francisco Bay Area, CA

Welcome to the San Francisco Bay Area URJ Community! Our community represents the two dozen Reform congregations in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. Within our community, we have had opportunities to bring together presidents and other congregational leaders, both in person and via webinars, to network with each other and meet with senior leaders of the Reform movement, including Rabbi Rick Jacobs, Vice President for Strengthening Congregations Amy Asin, and CFO Barbara Saidel.

For the last two years, clergy and congregants from throughout the Bay Area have marched together in the SF Pride Parade. As a community we joined together as one united group to show our solidarity with the Pride movement, proclaim our support of civil and human rights, and demonstrate our own strength in numbers.
