Upcoming Events

Throughout the year many holiday events are held at the JCC East Bay as a place to gather, learn, and celebrate. Some of these holidays include Purim, Passover, Shavuot, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Hanukah. We hope you'll join us for the variety of celebrations and services we offer for each holiday.

The East Bay’s Community Hanukkah Party

Presented with Camp Tawonga and Jewish Gateways

Sunday, December 13, 3:30 – 6:00 pm

Celebrate the last night of Hanukkah with a party that has something for everyone – adults, teens, and tots! Light the menorah candles and feast on delicious Hanukkah favorites like latkes and jelly donuts.

JCC and Tawonga staff will lead kids’ programs while adults schmooze with friends and explore the real story behind the holiday. Best of all, everyone will gather for singing and music with the amazingly talented Isaac Zones. See you there!
