JCC EAST BAY AND CONTRA COSTA JCC ENTER STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP TO EXPAND JEWISH PROGRAMMING ACROSS THE GREATER EAST BAY
 
[Berkeley, CA, May 13, 2019] The Jewish Community Center of the East Bay (JCCEB) and The Contra Costa Jewish Community Center (CCJCC) have signed an agreement to jointly offer community, cultural, and educational programs and services in Contra Costa County and Eastern Alameda County. Each JCC will remain independent, with this agreement focused on program collaboration and new content development.
 
"By working together, our two independent JCC will be able to significantly strengthen and expand connections to Jewish life and values in the East Bay,” said JCCEB board president Steven Douglas.
 
The two organizations will collaborate over the next year through a variety of co-branded initiatives, including shared marketing, events, and custom programming, including: 
Co-producing salons and gatherings in Contra Costa County and Eastern Alameda County that extend the thought-provoking and civic-minded missions of both institutions, and collaborating on transformative programming for all ages, including the JCC Maccabi Games, camp, young adult initiatives, and holiday celebrations. 
 
“I’m thrilled to extend the reach of both JCCs and increase our collective ability to advance Jewish life in the East Bay,” said interim CEO Samantha Kelman. “These cooperative efforts will enrich the communities served by each JCC.”
 
Larry Jacobs, President of the Contra Costa JCC adds, “The Contra Costa JCC is proud to add new programming and opportunities for community engagement to its successful Under One Tent series. I am particularly excited about adding more programs for our youth and young adults throughout Contra Costa”.
