This Is Bay Area Jewry: a discussion & celebration

Beth Am, Lehrhaus Judaica and Building Jewish Bridges present a photo essay exhibition showcasing the range of diversity in our community. The exhibition features 23 intimate portraits of individuals and families from a variety of backgrounds and levels of religious observance — from the North and South Peninsulas, San Francisco, Oakland/Berkeley, Contra Costa, and Marin. The project is a combination of photographs and written profiles, shedding light on the unparalleled Bay Area Jewish community. We invite you to meet these individuals – born Jewish and converts, LGBT Jews, and multicultural Jews – all take center stage. Their paths to Judaism and spiritual connections may differ, but they are all Jews of the Bay Area.

Join us for a reception with refreshments. There will be a tour of the exhibit at 3:45 pm. At 4 pm several of the exhibit participants will be in conversation with Dawn Kepler, discussing why they participated and what they hope to communicate to the Jewish community.
There will be time to mingle and talk after the panel.
